Our Children's Stories

Meet Rosa

By Miracle Flights, Nov 27 2017 05:40PM

Rosa was born in 2008 with a condition called Arthrogryposis. This condition occurs, on average, in 1 in every 3,000 births. It limits the movements of joints with varying degrees. Rosa was affected on her legs and arms. The doctor who delivered her did not give much hope, indicating she would be wheelchair bound.

Determined to find another solution to better evaluate her, Rosa's mom set out to find a doctor who specialized in her disability... and she found it in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Today she is walking with the help of a KAFOS (Knee-Ankle-Foot-Orthosis).
