Jack Berry, of Missoula, Montana, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2018 which resulted in the amputation of his right leg. He spent months at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston receiving treatment for the osteosarcoma. After he went back to Montana, he became active again with the use of his new artificial leg, but he needed a special water prosthesis to go swimming and participate in other water sports.
The Foundation was honored to have the opportunity to provide Jack with an artificial water leg in July 2020 so he could get back into the water and do the things he loves like swimming and surfing.
Jack’s artificial water leg was made by A Step Ahead in Burlington, MA. This was the Foundation’s 9th donation.
