“Don’t quit,” he tells other new amputees. “Or give up faith and hope.”

Terrell Smith’s life was changed forever while riding through the mountains on his motorcycle. The kickstand came down suddenly and became stuck in the road, shot-putting the bike. Terrell was thrown from the motorcycle and struck the guardrail. The resulting injury to his arm caused an infection that was so bad that the arm had to be removed—otherwise, he could have lost his life.

He first came to Bulow Prosthetics after doing research on different prosthetists, and found us to be the best prosthetic provider. He was fitted with an LTI shoulder joint, a Utah 3 elbow and a Proplus Hand. He’s been learning to adapt to having one arm, both mentally and physically.

Terrell is by far not a quitter, and many of his friends describe him as outgoing, caring, funny and temperamental. In his spare time he enjoys watching TV, shopping online, drawing and tattooing. His most defining moment hasn’t been the accident, but the birth of his kids.

“Don’t quit,” he tells other new amputees. “Or give up faith and hope.”
