From WHEELCHAIR to PODIUM - Winning the GOLD

We sat down with Paralympic swimmer Mallory Weggemann this week to discuss her preparations for Rio, her new partnership with Hershey's and her amazing life story.

Weggemann became paraplegic after a routine epidural injection to treat post-shingles back pain in 2008. In our exclusive interview with her, she talks about what she's learned from the moment that changed her life and how it catapulted her swimming success.

Now, she has teamed up with Hershey's Team USA family for their "Hello From Home" campaign. Weggemann discusses why Hershey's represents "home" for her:

"Hello From Home" features three super-star athletes -- Weggemann, Jordan Burroughs and Simone Biles -- as well as their family and friends who have been by their side throughout their journey to compete at the Olympic Games. The magic of the campaign is unveiled when the athletes' open their iconic Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars to find "hellos from home," hand-written notes of encouragement, love and support from those closet to them – their family and friends.

Here is Biles' touching video:
