Candace Cameron Bure will be surprised if Amy Purdy lets a painful injury keep her from performing on tomorrow's Dancing With the Stars.
"So far, so good," Bure told me about the snowboarder at Friday's Race to Erase MS benefit for the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis. "She's doing OK. She's pushing through. She's getting treatment and she's a strong woman so she's going to be out there."
During Monday's DWTS, the 34-year-old athlete suffered a shoulder injury during her rumba with dancing partner Derek Hough. Following the performance, she was whisked off to the hospital while her fellow contestants and viewers at home wished her well.
"So, Looks like I have a rib out of place and my muscles are in spasm," Purdy tweeted the following morning.
Former mirror ball hopeful Cody Simpson said he's rooting for Purdy to win this season.
"Obviously, she's very deserving of it," the Aussie singer said at Race to Erase. "I had the chance to talk to her quite a lot and she's honestly one of the most inspiring people I have ever met in my life, one of the most incredible…She touches a part of you that doesn't get touched very often emotionally. It would be really nice to see her take home the crown."
