Franklin, Quadruple Amputee, Rides a Bike for the First Time since His Amputations!

Just received some great news and video from Franklin – he rode a bike for the first time since losing all four of his limbs to a near-deadly bacterial infection in 2011. “I hope you guys are okay. One more time I want to share with POA another goal of my life – yesterday was my first time riding (a) bike after my amputations!” After the skin grafts healed, Franklin learned to run, play basketball and ping pong, and now bike riding! We’re so proud of you, Franklin! ‪#‎NoBoundaries‬

We had a great time with Jack and his family last week! It was especially fun when Steve Chamberland brought some of his other 50legs.org kiddos up to meet them. Another bonus was that William, who is about Jack’s age, was scheduled for an appt. that day, too. Party at POA! Happy Tuesday, everyone!
