In addition to her humanitarian mission this fall, Thomas, who has a 13-year-old son and lives in Champaign, Ill., also has plans to skate again professionally. She will join other U.S. skating stars who are coming out of retirement for A Salute to the Golden Age of American Skating Dec. 11 in Atlantic City.
"I want to prove to myself that I've still got it," she said. "I look at it as a challenge. I've been jumping on the floor and my jumps are getting better every day. But I don't want to get people's expectations too high. In that way, it's just like surgery."
