Thanks to all the generous donations, Allison at Horton's, & ABLE, Jessica has received swimming legs! We appreciate all the support! See More

THE STORY:

Jessica Smith is 33 years old and a lover of nature and animals. In December 2012, she became very sick with a blood infection, almost losing her life. However, the sickness cost her both of her legs below the knees and parts of 5 of her fingers. The loss of her legs has made it very difficult for her to get around outdoors, to enjoy nature and to follow her dream of pursuing a fieldwork based degree in marine biology. She recently obtained new hydraulic ankles through the help of this fundraiser and Hanger Clinic, allowing her to walk more easily on difficult terrain. Now, she is in need of waterproof legs that will allow her to be in and around water. Her insurance company will not cover them and we cannot afford them on our own. My name is Nick and I am Jessica's fiance, and we would appreciate any help you can provide to help us reach our goal. Thank you!
