As many of you know, I have been an ambassador for the Move for Jenn Foundation since we were introduced to them in 2020. That year pretty much changed Addison and our family’s life because MFJ granted her a running/activity leg. The leg Addison received right after surgery was a basic leg with a foot that did not move, leaving her no option to run and play as a 5-year-old should be able to do.
Since Addison received her activity leg, she runs, she plays, she swims, she skis, rides horses, does gymnastics and more recently conquered rock climbing!!! Just when I thought she had done it all, she blew my mind again!!!!! Recently, she has been watching her twin sister Avery play soccer and told me she would like to try playing. I of course signed her up immediately!!!
Since then, Addison played in her first soccer game and scored a goal!!!!!!!!! The emotions were out of this world for our family. More importantly, the joy on Addison’s face was the happiest, I mean GENUINE HAPPINESS. She continue to play soccer and ride horses to this day.
The Move for Jenn Foundation continues to support recipients like my daughter even after their grant is awarded. They do this by checking in, coordinating with prosthetists, educating, providing new equipment when needed and much more!! We have been dedicated to this organization and participate in their Pajamas All Day 5k Race every year.
Move for Jenn has helped so many that have lost a limb to this terrible disease. It is hard to believe that we were unsure if our daughter would ever really “MOVE” to this capacity again, and now she is thriving. I feel so lucky to be a part of this organization and they will forever be a part of our family.
