in #CASE you missed it… Dad Quits Job To Make Bionic Arm for Son.
Dad’s are pretty awesome. They teach us, the lead us, the love us and there isn’t much most Dad’s wouldn’t do for their kids right?
I was reading about this one dad named Ben Ryan who quit his job, and get this taught himself biotechnology after his baby son had to have his arm amputated at 10 months old due to a blood clot in his arm.
Ben locked himself away for days to work on making his son a state of the art arm that would meet his needs. The technology that would allow for sensors in the limbs, etc wasn’t available for kids that young. Plus Ben adds most of them are “ugly” and “cumbersome”
To be honest Ben’s wife thought he may have “lost it “so to speak. "He was in his shed at the bottom of the garden and I wouldn't see him for days", she said.
Ben and his family were on Good Morning Britain recently and shared their story. Check it out!
