The advice Katherine has for other new amputees is to “accept it’s you and move on. You have to do what you have to do and take it day by day.”

In January of 2016, life as Katherine Morgan knew it changed dramatically. Due to complications of Peripheral Vascular Disease, she had to have a lower extremity amputation, but because of her fighting spirit and unwavering determination, Katherine is on the mend and getting back to the activities she enjoys most.

After losing her husband at a very young age, Katherine was forced to raise their five children as a single mother, two boys and three girls who, all except 1, still live near her in Tennessee.

At the recommendation of her vascular doctor, Katherine started working with Bulow OPS practitioner Scott Moore, CP, PTA who fit her with an above the knee prosthesis with lanyard suspension, a balance knee from Ossur, and an Odyssey foot from College Park.

Katherine is now walking with confidence again. She is most proud of learning how to walk again and standing up while cooking. Katherine attributes her success to her positive attitude and determination. Recently, Katherine even ventured to the Georgie Flea Market with her son while using her prosthesis!
