In February 2010, I snowboarded into a tree. After five reconstructive surgeries to salvage my ankle, I decided to get a below-knee amputation. Will I ride again? Absolutely.
Tears of Pure Joy are falling down my cheeks! I am so happy for you. You look amazing! And again you make it look easy. You have been through so much and come so far. Congratulations! Mom
Congratulations! You are definitely on your way back to snowboarding!
I cried when I watched this video.Way to go Tony - amazing and wonderful and inspiring!!! See you Monday!!!Maria
Mema and I are so amazed and proud of your progress Tony! It's like a miracle! Love you all. A. Lana
Great to see your progress man! How does it feel being free from post-traumatic ankle pain? Listen, somehow I was expecting you will be fitted with the iWalk biofoot. Could you comment on that? Was it insurance issues, cost, or biotype? (you seem to be fairly tall).
Tony, Great job. This was a first for me as well watching someone walk with a prosthetic for the first time. I did wonder how your remaining leg would fit with the prosthetic. Your walking looked smooth and I imagine will only get smoother with time. This is definitely helpful as I "walk" with Chris through her decision-making and preparing emotionally. Uh, nice touch with "The Final Countdown" by Europe in the background.Scott Morgan
