I loved to play sports - basketball, softball and soccer. When I was 11 the growth plate in my left hip broke. I had three surgeries at another facility and each time the pain got worse. I didn't even want to get out of bed to go to school - which I really love. I was in a wheel chair and was using a walker or crutches for a year.
