Grant Korgan: Paralyzed and Hiking to the South Pole

Grant Korgan was a recent newlywed with a nanotech company and a love for extreme sports.  Then on March 2010, a snowmobile accident smashed his vertebrae.  The prognosis was that he'd likely never walk again.  But Grant Korgan and his wife refused to believe it: they sold their belongings and embarked on a long journey toward recovery.  Grant Korgan talks about the power of hope, and how it's possible for a paraplegic to ski to the South Pole.
