“I have always lived with a feeling of shame about not having my leg,” Turnage says. “But when I stood up and walked for the first time, the incredible joy erased that shame,”
The mom adds, “Learning to use ReWalk is a process and every time I wear it, I learn something new. I can feel myself getting stronger.”
