Not sure if you heard about the DiMartino family (from Webster) back in April, but siblings Pete & Gina were injured during the bombing while waiting for their mom to finish the marathon. Pete is a very good friend of my boyfriend, so I've seen firsthand the struggles Pete (and Gina) and his girlfriend Rebekah (from Texas, also injured in the blast) have gone through to recover from this horrible incident.
I couldn't be happier not only that Pete and Rebekah are recovering well, though the doctor's still aren't sure about the prognosis on Rebekah's foot...but I'm ecstatic that these two have persevered, and have come through the other side of this tragedy stronger people. And more in love, too...they got engaged two weeks ago!
Pete and Rebekah, along with Rebekah's son, Noah...we on Ellen on Monday, and in case you missed it, here's the video:
