FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) - A young woman who made medical history by surviving rabies without a vaccination has reached another milestone in her life.

Jenna Giese was married over the weekend in Fond du Lac. Giese says her husband, Scot Frassetto, is always there to encourage her and that they just fit together. WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1odckH9 ) says the couple has been together about 2½ years.

A bite from a rabid bat nearly ended Giese’s life about 10 years ago when she was in high school. An experimental treatment saved her life. But, she would have to learn to stand, walk and talk all over again.

And, after 2½ months in the hospital, Giese left Children’s Hospital and continued her rehabilitation. After years of steady progress, Giese graduated from Lakeland College in Sheboygan in 2011.
