Melanie Waldman

 

Melanie Waldman was 23 years old when she suffered from a heparin induced thrombocytopenia after 2 blood clots were found in the arteries of her right wrist.  As a result, she lost motor function in her right hand and wrist.  Doctors decided it would be in her best interest to amputate her right arm.  She is a yoga instructor and was hoping to receive a recreational arm that would allow her to live a more active life and aid her in teaching her power yoga classes.  We were able to grant Melanie’s wish and had the pleasure of attending her first class utilizing her new arm!
