Amy Oestreicher was an ambitious, audacious teenager who had her life all planned out: go to college, win a Tony, and conquer the world. But life took an unexpected detour when the week before her high school senior prom, she found herself in unusual pain. She was rushed to the emergency room, and due to a blood clot, Amy’s stomach exploded to the ceiling of the operating room. After both lungs collapsed, she almost died.
Months later, she awoke from a coma covered in tubes, bags, and drains, and was told that she had no stomach anymore, she could not eat or drink, and it was not certain if or when she would ever taste one bite ever again. It took 27 surgeries and over three years, but eventually, Amy was miraculously reconstructed, and with the intestines she had left, was given a system that digests food.
Gutless & Grateful is the one-woman musical autobiography of Amy Oestreicher, taking the audience on a journey of hope, resilience and gratitude. An inspiring story of survival and determination, Gutless & Grateful is ideal for audiences of all ages.
