Megan's Fundraiser

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

I blogged in January about my sister Megan's snowboarding trip. While snowboarding in Utah, she met another amputee who had an XT9 leg.

The XT9 is an energy storing knee, and it is for high activity levels. I think it was love at first sight. Megan really wanted it. Unfortunately, insurance only pays for one leg, so getting this XT9 leg would be pretty expensive.

Thankfully Megan has some pretty amazing friends. AMAZING!! Her roommate's parents decided to host a fundraiser. Some sore of motorcycle/poker run thing. All the money raised went directly to Fourroux Prosthetics.

The day of the poker run, $3,000 was raised!! And even more was sent to Fourroux later! All sorts of people sent money. Even one of my mom's high school boyfriends. How weird is that?!

The fundraiser was a huge success! On March 12, 2009, Megan had her accident. What a difference a year makes!
