Meningitis

Amputee

Pam Reynolds

I am perfectly me just the way I am

When I was 10 months, I contracted a form of meningitis called Meningococcemia. In order for me to make a full recovery, nine of My fingers and both of my feet were amputated. I am now 17 and a junior in high school. I've played pretty much every sport and I have been surfing since I was 5. I am currently on the varsity volleyball and soccer team and made the 2016 SCISA All-Star team. And I am planning on running varsity track this fall! I was recently featured in the November issue of 17 magazine #perfectlyme campaign. Always keep trying no matter what; I have to train 10x more than anyone else just to be equal and even more to be better.
