Micaela is 16 years old and became a part of ABR in January 2013. She was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, resulting in a congenital aka on her left side and fibular hemimelia on her right leg. Micaela was fitted for her first prosthesis when she was 10 months old. She played softball for 6 years, was a Junior High cheerleader and loves performing in her High School Show Choir. She met Aaron Fitzsimmons during a doctor’s appointment in Nashville and heard about ABR. Micaela feels extremely thankful to have been fitted for a running blade and for the opportunity to meet other amputees. She is now training for her first 5k in March 2013. She would like to thank Aaron and Ryan for all that they do and helping her realize that the possibilities are endless!
