POA client Katie Eddington, AK amputee – Making Great Strides! #CNN #WKYT TV

7-year-old POA Orlando client Katie Eddington made the news twice this week; first in her home state of Kentucky and then on CNN national news! This pint-size dynamo made the decision to amputate her leg last December, and has never looked back! During her most recent visit to POA we fit her with a running prosthesis with a special blade, and now Katie is training to run a 5K. Run like the wind, Katie!   #POAproud #NoBoundaries

POA and 50Legs.org Kids Rock! – #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!
