In this Monday, Feb. 13, 2017 photo, Heather Abbott, right, prosthetist David Rotter, left, and Vidal Lopez talk amongst themselves at the University of Illinois at Chicago Hospital, in the Near West Side neighborhood. Abbott, a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing and founder of The Heather Abbott Foundation, teamed up with Scheck & Siress, a Chicago based prosthetic firm, to provide Lopez with new customizable prosthetic legs. Vidal was born in Chicago but grew up in Mexico. A car crash involving a tractor trailer in July 2016, left him without his legs. He wrote to the Heather Abbott Foundation with hopes to receive a grant to help him pay for the prosthetic legs that he needed. Heather was touched by his story and decided to provide Vidal with the financial support he needed to secure his future. (Alyssa Pointer/Chicago Tribune via AP)
