Sophia’s Story

Sophia’s parents learned that she was going to be born missing her left hand at their first ultrasound. Before she was even born, they were able to get connected with The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program and received tremendous support. Since she was born, the CHAMP Program has been there to help with financial support for artificial limbs, regional seminars and peer support.

Sophia was fitted with her first artificial arm when she was 10 months old. Today, Sophia is an active girl who likes rock climbing, playing the piano and swimming.

“With the support of The War Amps, Sophia has all the tools she needs to overcome the challenges that come with being an amputee. So, to all the people that have donated to the Key Tag Service, I say, ‘thank you.’” Ryan, Sophia’s Dad

Thanks to donations to the Key Tag Service, Sophia has the “helping hands” she needs to achieve her goals.
