My name is Madelyn Hubbs and my close friends call me “Maddie.” I am 14 years old and my hobbies are therapeutic horsemanship, swimming, and knitting. I live in St. Louis with my dad, mom, younger brother (Kyle) and our cat Elmo. I was born without my left arm and I received my first prosthetic arm from St. Louis Shriners Hospitals for Children before my first birthday. St. Louis Shriners Hospitals for Children have continued to provide me prosthetics, show me ways to do things with one hand, provided strengthening exercises and monitor a slight curvature in my spine. I always love going to St. Louis Shriners Hospitals for Children. One thing I remember about going to my favorite hospital when I was younger, is I would always receive a toy or stuffed animal. I decided a few years ago to collect toys and other items kids would like to have while visiting the hospital and as of this year I have donated over 1000 items. A few years ago I became an Ambassador for St. Louis ShrinersHospitals for Children. As an Ambassador I have gone to schools in our community to talk about limb differences, prosthetics, and bullying.
