FILE - This undated photo provided by the family shows Aimee Copeland, the 24-year-old Georgia graduate student fighting to survive a flesh-eating bacterial infection. Copeland is refusing to take pain medications during some procedures, partly because of her personal convictions. She despises the use of morphine in her treatment, despite its effectiveness at blocking her pain, her father said in a Friday, June 15, 2012 update on his daughter’s condition.
