POA Kids Love Their “Mr. Stan!”

Bella, Iz, and Nico helped Mr. Stan welcome Lulu to POA and showed her all their *abilities*. #NoBoundaries here! Bella is a bilateral above knee amputee (PFFD), Iz is a bone cancer survivor with a Van Ness rotationplasty amputation, and Nico is missing both arms above the elbow. We will be making an above knee prosthesis for Lulu which will actually be her “good” leg while she is undergoing limb lengthening surgery on her other leg. Whatever the reason for or type of amputation, we’re committed to helping all our POA kids live fun and active lives! #poakidsrock #lovethem

POA’s Bruce and Zee Throw Out First Pitch At Detroit Tigers/Houston Astros Game

POA’s Bruce and Zee threw out the first pitch(es) at last weeks’ Detroit Tigers/Houston Astros baseball game! The Tigers team manager had met the husband/wife amputees at a previous game and was so impressed by their ABILITIES that he asked them to come back and throw out the traditional “first pitch!”
