Hi, my name is Carlos L. Morales and I’m from Cleveland TN. On September 7, 2015, I had a lung infection that required the doctors in ICU to put me in an induced coma. I was 33 days in that coma and it caused my blood pressure to be extremely low. In order to get my blood pressure back to normal levels the doctor used a strong medication that helps to solve the blood pressure problem but as a side effect, it started a dry gangrene on my feet and my hands. On December 5, 2015, I got amputated and it was the worst thing that ever happened to me. I used to play soccer and do work out regularly and also work standing on my feet all day. I was depressed and hopeless but my wife knew that there was somebody willing to help people like me. She started searching for foundations and asking people if they knew about anywhere or anybody able to help me. After a few weeks of search she found out about 50 legs and I started to gain a little bit of hope. We made contact with Tiffany from 50 legs and in no time she got our flight schedule and a hotel booked. At that moment I realized that I was going to be able to get back to normal. On February 15, 2016, we arrived at Orlando Fl and thanks to 50 legs and PAO I went back home to TN walking. After 6 months I had to go back to POA to get my prosthetic refit and one more time 50 Legs was willing to help me and again in a matter of weeks, they had my flight scheduled and hotel booked. August 21, 2016, I arrived in Orlando Fl and September 1, 2016, I was back in Tennessee with my refitted prosthesis. Now I walk and do most of my daily stuff by myself. I’m back at work which I thought was going to be impossible. But I was wrong, it was possible. And all that plus many other things that are about to happen in my life, new adventures, new opportunities are going to be possible thanks to 50 legs and their kindness.
