Inspirational People: Tiphanie Barnes, lost fingers and toes but not her smile! She made the news with her new prostheses.

This story is amazing (I may be a little partial since she is an EastPoint patient).  Tiphanie is a beautiful young lady both inside and out.  She has been through many trials and has overcome them.  Thank you to “9 On Your Side” for giving over two minutes of TV air time for a heartwarming story.

Inspirational People: The Wounded Warrior Softball Team take on Celebrity Softball Team

This video is amazing.  Kudos the the men on this team to make a positive impact and not let their disability get in their way.  There are a few funny parts, I like the part where they have some ideas what they would do if they were synchronized swimmers.

Inspirational People: Alex Ried, 17 year-old basketball player

Alex Ried was born with a condition called fibular hemimelia. His parents had the agonizing decision of whether to put their son through an amputation or try radical reconstruction surgeries. They chose the amputation and he is making the most of life. This article is truly inspiring.

It should be noted that I am a huge fan of the liner and lock combination he is wearing. In my opinion, it is difficult to go wrong with an Alpha Select liner and a Coyote Locking Mechanism. (just my two cents)
