Above the Knee Amputation
Raymond Franklin

Raymond was 10 years old when his family was involved in a near fatal car accident. He was not wearing his seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle. Both of his arms were broken. Numerous surgeries were done in hope to save his leg but he ended up having a amputation above the knee. So much blood was lost and his leg was damaged beyond repair. Losing his leg at an early age has not stopped him from playing basketball or football. He nearly bleed to death and we almost lost him but the many prayers have brought him through and made him a stronger child.
