A child who is different from other children often experiences agonizing verbal abuse. While it is sometimes difficult to deal with the difference, it doesn’t have to become a disability.
So, at 17 years old, one young man, who had insults hurled at him on the playing field, stepped forward to lead by example and light the way for others who are different.
Sam has only missed one of the dozens of Nubability camps and clinics and that was only because his son was born the week before a camp.
He has written about his journey in a book called, Game Changer, How to Thrive When Life Doesn’t Go According to Plan.
And, he’s been named an Amazon Best Selling Author.
Let us also take the opportunity to point out that while many limb different children don’t know anyone else like them, there are those who do.
Sam Rudloff, the Nubability Program Director, grew up in a family where all the children were limb different.
NubAbility® Athletics Foundation | The NubAbility® Athletics Foundation encourages, inspires and instructs limb-different youth (congenital or traumatic amputees) by getting them out of the stands, off the bench and into mainstream sports. Imagine the power of having a mentor who looks like you. [NubAbility.org] #DontNeed2
