Timothy is a 16 year old who was born with a right clubfoot. He has had multiple surgeries (8 total) since birth and was left with a very painful foot. He elected to have a below knee amputation in September 2009 and is now doing very well.
When Timothy’s mom told him that he had been nominated for HERO OF THE MONTH, his response was, “It’s okay, it’s not a big deal what I’ve been through.” She said he is very humble and appreciative for everything Shriners Hospitals for Children – Greenville has done for him. Regardless of what he thinks, Timothy is a true HERO in our eyes!
