New Leg for a Champion

New Leg for a Champion

Personal message

I lost my leg in a friendly fire shooting accident in Jan 1987 in Katima Molilo, as part of the SA Marines doing border duty. I am a left leg above the knee amputee.

I celebrated 31 years as a amputee on the 5th of January 2018,of which I had to spend on crutches all these years. Due to the complexity and skin irritation I was never able to walk with a prosthesis due to the socket.

I now have a Golden Opportunity to restart my life as a walking amputee. Osseointegration is a revolutionary procedure for amputees that utilizes a titanium rod implanted in the bone of the residual limb to attach the prosthetic appliance instead of a traditional socket.

As a child of God I always knew God had a  plan for my life as a amputee, I always try to live life to the fullest testifying Gods grace and embracing life.
