“It is important to learn new skills after hand trauma,” he explains. “After a loss is the best time to explore something new because there is no benchmark of success to meet. You have to find your new normal in the little things.”
“You may feel hopeless in the moment, but it does get better. And you will be surprised at what you could learn. I am a different person now and I grew from the experience.”
"I am confident that I can do more things and then some with this new opportunity given to me—to inspire others who are just like me and to show them that for every setback, there is a major comeback!"

"It’s a game changer for me. 20 years ago, as a freshly injured kid walking into a prosthetist’s office and being completely disheartened about what was available to help replace my fingers. Now, I finally have something that makes me feel like I have a bit of a whole hand again.”
