My daughter has been a 4 year patient of Boston and Springfield. She turned 21 on May 1st. She needed new legs since she has been working out incredibly hard and lost a lot of weight since January. Boston saved her life - Springfield has helped her live it. Springfield wanted to hold off on her last pair of legs before she leaves for her junior college year next week down south. Sheis still working out hard. Tomorrow she is driving to Springfield to get her 8th and last pair of Shriners legs. In the real world 8 pairs of legs totals somewhere around a quarter million dollars.
Carrie is done as a Shriner patient but we will always be a Shriner Family continuing to help spread the word and help Shriners however we can.
Thank you Shriners so very very much for what you have given us......life and limb literally. One of my mental struggles has been how does a father thank someone for saving his daughter's life. I will never stop trying.
Thanks to all for your consideration and support of this great Cause.
