Wanda McFadden was my prosthetist from age 4 to 18. She made sure my leg fit perfectly – every time.

My Defining Moment:

The main reason my family moved from California to Texas was to get my scoliosis treated at TSRHC.

A Moment to Remember:

The staff knew what my favorite toy was and surprised me with it after surgery to help my recovery.

My Moment to Shine:

I feel less self-conscious about my posture and now I confidently stand tall for pictures.
