Date of Amputation/Cause: Nov. 1984 (one month shy if my 3rd
birthday). Doctors said it was cancer, amputated my right arm/shoulder. Just 5
months after the amputation I was correctly diagnosed with a rare bone disease
that affects less than 700 worldwide. Iím the only amputee with this disease.
Prosthesis: I had 2 pros between the ages of 4-7 years old ... never again
Amp Events Attended: I've been to the ACA 2008-2009 in Atlanta. I never knew
any amputee communities out there existed before 2008. I just got back from the
2009 One Arm Dove Hunt, and Iíll be back in Olney for the 2010 hunt!
Other Information: Iím divorced for 4 years now. I live with my parents now as
with this debilitating disease, I need help caring for my personal needs. I
watch my friends 4 year old during the week and have been doing that for 2+
years now. He is a great kid!
