Legally blind gymnast gets the surprise of a lifetime

Blind Gymnast Gets the Surprise of a Lifetime
Lola, 14, is legally blind, but that hasn't stopped her from competing in the difficult sport of gymnastics. 'The Doctors' were so inspired by her drive that they decided to make one of Lola's dreams come true: a meeting with her hero, Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas.

'This is such an amazing moment for me,' Gabby said. 'I am starstruck, Lola. You are truly incredible. This truly shows what a mind can do. If you love something and have a passion for something, you won't let anything stop you. You are amazing.' Lola was rendered completely speechless.

After much hugging, Gabby brought out her gold medal and put it around Lola's neck.

The meeting was so special that both women started to cry ... and even Dr. Travis Stork got a little misty-eyed.
