Last quote by Fred Downs

When you lose an upper extremity, you lose your independence, your ability to take care of yourself. When you lose your independence, you lose somewhat of your dignity as a human being because you have to depend on others to comb your hair, go to the bathroom. With a prosthetic limb, your independence and dignity are returned to you. This is freedom, let me tell you. When I don't have my arm on, I think I am disabled. But when I have this arm on, I don't think I'm disabled.feedback
