The amazing Claire Lomas finished the London Marathon in 16 days with the aid of a bionic suit made by ReWalk. The $69,000 FDA-approved motorized skeleton helped her by correcting shifts in her balance.
In 2007, Lomas broke her neck, back and ribs and punctured a lung after being thrown from a horse. She will receive a special cup for her participation because she didn't qualify for a medal since she didn't finish the walk in one day.
The courageous marathoner has already raised about £80,000 (~$128,000) for Spinal Research, an organization that funds research and treatments for back and neck paralysis. Although she says she is just glad to have earned the money, a campaign is already underway to see that she is properly awarded for her performance and several other runners donated their medals to her.
