When bombs went off 5 years ago at the Boston Marathon, three people were killed and hundreds were injured, including 18 year old Gillian Reny. The blasts sent shrapnel tearing into her right leg, and she was rushed to Brigham and Women's Hospital, where doctors and nurses fought to save the limb. It was far from a sure thing at first, but as the months passed, it became clear that they could keep her leg intact. Grateful as she began to recover, Reny and her family asked how they could thank the doctors. Their answer was to establish the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Fund, which has raised more than $11 million since 2014 to support trauma research. That research got a physical home last year when the Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation opened at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
