Amputee Ski Trip Spotlight: Diana, age 15 of Garland
Diana, age 15 of Garland, has been coming to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children since she was a baby. She wears a prosthetic leg and has never been skiing or snowboarding. However, Diana says she loves snow and cold weather! She plays the violin in her school orchestra and her favorite things include chocolate-covered strawberries and the TV show "Gravity Falls." When she grows up, Diana hopes to be a veterinarian. Diana says she looks up to her parents, and the thing she is most proud of is knowing her mom and dad are proud of her.
