Blake Holding's parents faced an excruciating decision. Their child was diagnosed with a rare blood disease. They would have to approve having both of Blake's arms and legs amputated halfway -- or they would lose her.
They had no choice. They had to do whatever they could to save her life. But what kind of life would it be for a child with no hands and feet?
In this program we are let in on a wonderful discovery. Blake is coping amazingly well as a delightful little girl, full of vitality and joy. She has found remarkable ways to compensate for her limitations. This moving program shows how determination, courage and faith can help bring us through seemingly hopeless situations.
More than one hundred children are smitten with this disease each year. They are united in an organization, founded after World War I by a man who is an amputee himself.
