In January 2014, a Zumba instructor in Rogers, Minnesota, Adela Alverez collapsed during a Zumba class. She had gone into cardiac arrest. When she awoke from sedation several weeks later, she discovered her leg had been amputated due to infection.
As a physical therapy student as well as Zumba instructor, this story hits home to me. Please consider donating to Ms. Alverez’s Go Fund Me page to help her cover medical costs including a prosthetic leg so that she can begin the long recovery process and hopefully teach Zumba again soon!
