The Journey of Our Founder
Please leave your email to recieve updates and upcoming events from Mircale Limbs.
In July 2010, recent high school graduate Tim Delano’s life plans changed drastically when he and some of his friends decided to go for a swim in an Estates canal in Naples Florida. He was attacked by a 10-foot alligator. He survived by punching and pulling himself away from the gator, but he lost his left hand in the process.
As time passed, Tim was unable to find a job, began withdrawing from society, and falling into a depressed state of mind. Tim’s mother, Debbie, contacted Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion desperate to find help for Tim.
Bob visited Tim several times, while he was living with his parents. Arrangements were made with a local prosthetic company to have Tim fitted with a prosthetic arm. After finding out that Tim wanted to become a marine mechanic, Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion worked with Lorenzo Walker Technical School, towards a scholarship for Tim. Tim will be starting school soon and will have marine mechanic certification within 18 months. The prosthetist that Miracle Limbs set up for him is now designing a hand that can virtually take “snap-on” tools so that he can pursue his dream.
