At the young age of three, Jemma Kelly has already gone through an incredible amount of hardship for a little girl her age.
The day Jemma was born, the doctors informed her parents Tamara and Jimmy that even though their baby was fine, there was a problem with her leg and hands. When Tamara saw her daughter, she was taken aback. "She only had three fingers on each hand and there wasn't an ankle on her bottom right leg so it had formed in a hook shape," she commented.
Here’s a video of her accomplishments:
The condition prevented Jemma from walking and playing normally. "I want my daughter to lead a normal life, she's an amazing little person and I will not let her life be changed by her disability," Tamara said.
"We were given options to extend her leg with screws, metals and rods," the young mom explained, "but we decided that if she had it amputated she could live a better life without countless surgeries."
Despite the doctors' other suggestions, the parents made the difficult decision to have their daughter’s leg amputated from the knee down. So little Jemma found herself with an amputated leg at just nine months of age.
Two months later, her first prothesis was fitted and her parents did everything they could to help her have fun and develop like any other child her age. They encouraged their little one to do sports. Moving her body enables Jemma to understand her body better and feel more comfortable in it, with the added benefit of the adrenaline that physical activity releases, which can't be a bad thing!
She just loves it. She even wants to become a cheerleader, and thanks to her new prothesis, it might just be possible. "She does cheerleading, plays tee-ball, rides a bike, bounces on trampolines — if you covered her prosthetic leg you'd never know the difference between her and any other child… Now she can bend down to grab things like in tee-ball and so she's just getting used to being able to kneel rather than throw her leg out," explained Tamara, before adding, "We're all incredibly proud of everything she's done so far, she's an amazing little girl."
"There’s never a dull moment with Jemma, she's never sitting still, even without her leg on she's always hopping around the house." Jemma loves taking on new challenges and never complains or lets her leg hold her back. The little girl is full of energy. Look at her smile; her fighting spirit is just so inspiring!
