After years of limb salvage surgeries and overcoming numerous obstacles, I found out that I would need a below the knee amputation. From Day One, 50 legs and POA have been there for me and they always will be. Because of 50 Legs I have successfully completed three 5Ks, I have swam a 1/2 mile in the ocean, I have gone ice fishing and snowmobiling, and I work in an Emergency room at a local hospital (something I never thought I would be able to do). There are so many hobbies and activities that I can do now, that I once was unable to do before the amputation. I also plan to continue helping and inspiring other amputees. This is because 50 Legs believed in me, and has inspired me to never give up! I am so grateful for 50 Legs; it is because of them that in the face of fear, I chose to fight one last fight and turned that fear into triumph! I want to thank 50 Legs from the bottom of my heart, because of you I have my life back! I love my 50 Legs Family!!
