March 1, 2015 – Bailey lost her arm in an ATV accident in Sept. 2013. (Her little sister Beth, also pictured, was in the accident too, but thankfully only suffered minor injuries.) Bailey is now 11 years old and full of life. Becky asked her, “What is the hardest thing for you to do?” She responded, “Nothing, really.” What a positive attitude she has! She is being fitted this week for a myoelectric hand. Becky loved spending the day with Bailey and her awesome family.
