BENEFITING: LIMBS FOR LIFE FOUNDATION
My fundraiser is for helping wounded soldiers, victims of accidents or diseases or anyone who is in the need for a prosthetic and are unable to afford one. I am in high school and my major will be biomedical engineering so that I can help make prosthetics for people who can't afford them. I have an uncle Chance who lost his leg below his knee due to a drunk driver. He was working for a cable company and one night while putting in cable , a drunk driver came and he was in the middle of the street working. He was unable to jump on the work truck in time and when the car hit him it crushed his leg. The Doctors worked to save his life and to save his leg but after 12 surgeries they were unable to keep his leg below the knee from being amputated. He loved his job and didn't sue his company and was later fired . He could not afford the nice expensive prosthetic leg . He has had to live with a prosthetic issued by the state which has left his knee raw and always in pain. If I can help victims get the prosthetics that they need and that are comfortable and easy to use then that would make them have better days and their life easier. I am doing the fundraiser in honor of my Uncle Chance. Please help me help to support one prosthetic at a time for a wounded soldier or a person who has lost a limb to an accident or disease. All money will go to limbs for life so that they can donate at least one prosthetic to a person in need . Thank you so much for your support.
