A 94-year-old Iowa woman is rolling through recovery on skates after falling and breaking her hip.

Evelyn Nichols loved to roller skate when she was a little girl.

And that childhood memory kept her focused after she broke her hip a few months ago.

After she fell, therapists told her there was a strong chance she would never be mobile again.

Through therapy she fought the odds, first re-learning how to walk, then re-learning her favorite childhood pastime, roller skating.
