Amputee Ski Trip Spotlight: Harrison, age 14 of Burleson

Harrison, age 14 of Burleson, has been a patient of Scottish Rite Hospital since he was an infant. He was born with a condition called fibular hemimelia, which resulted in a right leg amputation. In his spare time, Harrison enjoys riding his bike and playing video games with friends. This will be Harrison’s first time skiing. While he’s excited to get on the mountain, this pepperoni pizza lover is especially excited for the pizza party that happens on Friday night of the Ski Trip.
