DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - A north Alabama teenager is working hard to get her life back one year after a boating accident caused her to lose her leg. 

"They are going to take some hardware out of my foot and do a little bit of nerve reconstruction on that in a couple of weeks and then they are going to cut some bone off my stump that they need to for prosthesis comfort," said 17-year-old Molly Moses.

While she hasn't been able to get back to the classroom, she is looking forward to it.

Molly's spunk and determination makes her a role model for many.

"Friends and family are definitely my support. I wouldn't get through it without them," said Moses.

Molly says she didn't know until after she got out of the hospital just how much community support she had.

It's also protection for her family and community that she wants to see a specific state law enacted.

"Either a cage over the propeller or every person in the boat be hooked to a kill switch," Moses said.

She says she doesn't want anyone else to face the trials she faced this last year.

As Molly continues to make progress, she says her number one goal right now is to graduate with her class at Decatur High School in May.
