Hi everyone!

Recommended Posts

After enduring 10 years of pain and corrective surgeries to my right knee, my leg was finally amputated in 2004. I was 16 at the time and so scared at first, but my friends and family never let me get down on myself. I am more active now than ever before. I always say, " I will never give up, neither should you!" Take care!
