Gary has been working with us since mid-2020 after losing his right leg below the knee. He had a long healing process and finally got his first leg in January of this year. Now, three months later, he is back doing some of his favorite things. He loves Western dance and even showed us some moves at his last appointment. As a military veteran, Gary is proudly sporting an American flag design on his custom socket. He also has an adjustable ankle to be able to wear sneakers and his cowboy boots. Gary is living the life he had before his amputation and plans to return to teaching dance soon.
