“I haven’t been able to use my left arm much my whole life. This is about as far as I can lift it. I need a shoulder tendon transfer, and my shoulder blade and back are worsening because of this condition. This summer, I will be able to have my procedure and I look forward to being able to write with my left hand. Playing soccer is a sport I am excited to do one day as well.”
