Meet #WTFix 2018 speaker Doug Lindsay. Doug got sick at age 21 and spent the next 11 years bed bound until he developed the surgery that fixed him. During those years, he could walk only 50 feet and stand for about the length of a commercial break.

He bet his life on the operating table, and it paid off!
