Georgia (WDAY TV) -- The young Georgia woman fighting for her life, after a flesh eating disease spread through her body, has now spoken.

It's the first time 24 year old Aimee Copeland has talked since being taken to the hospital weeks ago for treatment.

Her left leg, right foot and both hands have been amputate in that time. She started breathing on her own last week and was able to sit up in a chair on Thursday.
