Bethany Hamilton lost her left arm above the shoulder from a shark attack at the age of 13. Her recovery and return to competitive surfing is the focus of the 2010 drama, Soul Surfer.
The Hawaiian teen suffered the attack not long after she'd won a local tournament and had been signed to an endorsement contract with the Rip Curl surfwear company. Her rehabilitation is lengthy and difficult, but she finally returns. However, frustrated and unable to regain the level she'd enjoyed previously, she decides to abandon the sport.
Touched by seeing the effects of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, she turns to her Christian faith and joins a youth group to Thailand in a relief effort and while there, realizes her disabilities are inconsequential compared to the devastation she encounters.
