This week, CNN will air a one-hour documentary profiling the journey of a Boston Marathon bombing survivor and dancer who lost part of her left leg after shrapnel tore through it at the Boylston Finish line.

Hosted by Anderson Cooper, The Survivor Diaries follows professional dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who agreed to let CNN film her everyday life in video diaries.


"The exclusive videos she shared with CNN paint a raw, honest and at times heart-breaking picture of a woman battling extreme physical and emotional challenges," CNN said in a news release announcing the documentary.

The Survivor Diaries will air Tuesday at 10 p.m. on CNN. A preview is available below:
