Guts2Glory shared Jumping Kids's post.
Yesterday we began a project with the children's cancer unit at Steve Biko Hospital. We met and fitted a young boy who had lost his leg above the knee to the disease and is now in remission. Even if these kids have medical aid their prosthetics are often not covered until they have been in remission for 2 years or more. This limits the kids at a time when they need to believe they have the potential for a big life ahead of them. We have fitted him with a fixed knee blade solution, as this gives him the stability to learn to use the leg whilst gaining the strength taken out of him by the disease. He's a fighter and once he is up for it we will put some pictures up to show you how he is doing. We at JK look forward to growing this relationship. Have a good long weekend JK friends.
