Amputee Ski Trip Spotlight: Maya, age 17 of Buda

Maya, age 17 of Buda, has been treated for prosthetic needs for the past three years at Scottish Rite Hospital. In Maya’s spare time, she enjoys running track, reading The Hunger Games series and drawing. Inspired by her time spent at the hospital, she hopes to become a nurse when she grows up. This will be Maya’s first time to go on the ski trip and she is most excited about seeing snow – since she has never seen it before!

About the Annual Amputee Ski Trip

February 2018 will mark the 37th anniversary of the annual Amputee Ski Trip, held each year at the National Sports Center for the Disabled in Winter Park, Colorado. Fourteen teenage patients with limb differences receive practical recreational therapy, while also having the opportunity to grow, build confidence and bond with others similar to them.
