Ashley Judd is one of the most renowned actors of our time. She has made her mark in many films and has established herself as a successful humanitarian. The actress is known for her work in ending genocide and other types of crimes against humanity. She has also been involved in several political campaigns and is a strong supporter of LGBT rights.
Despite all of her accomplishments, the 76-year-old actress has had some tumultuous times in recent years. She struggled with her mother’s death in April 2022, and has also had a long battle with mental illness. However, it seems that she is doing much better now.
In February of 2021, the actress was in the Democratic Republic of Congo on a humanitarian mission to search for bonobos, a type of endangered ape. During the expedition, she took a fall that broke her leg in four places. She was stranded on the ground for hours before she could be found. She was then carried in a hammock by “Congolese brothers” for six hours over hills, through rivers, and other difficult terrain to get to a camp where she could be rescued.
Since then, she has been working hard to recover from the injury and is finally able to walk again. She recently posted a video on Instagram of her hiking uphill, which is a huge milestone in her recovery. She has been able to do so because of the extensive rehab that she has undergone. She credits physiotherapy, osteopathy, and yoga for her recovery.
