Opportunity to shine

It is our greatest joy to watch our daughter Lizzie, a vibrant and courageous 10-year-old, face the world with confidence. Lizzie was born with a congenital reduction defect, which resulted in the amputation of her foot. However, thanks to the Bibian Mentel Foundation's Re-Abled program, she has moved from seeing her disability as an obstacle to seeing it as an opportunity to shine and be able to do anything her peers can do.

"I'm proud of everything I can just do like everyone around me! We can all do anything we want as long as we believe in it!"
