Helping kids get the prostheses they need to lead healthy and active lives.
Too often families cannot afford the prostheses their kids deserve. At the Jordan Thomas Foundation, we make sure every child has what they need to pursue their dreams.
Meet Our Kids
Madalyn **NEW JTF KID**
11-year-old Madalyn is very social and has lots of friends but has never really been around other child amputees like herself. It wasn't until last fall when Madalyn attended a limb different camp for kids that she realized how special it was to be around other kids like her. She made so many friends and could let go without having to brush off stares or questions from strangers. Madalyn and her family are so excited to be part of JTF so she can continue to have access to the prosthetic devices she needs to live an active, healthy, life, but also to be part of our community and support system!
Danica **NEW JTF KID**
Danica just recently turned three years old and has a personality that sums up being radiant, bright, a smart cookie, and a fearless little human that will do anything she puts her mind to! She was born with PFFD and Fibular Hemimelia on her left leg and has worn a prosthesis since she was a baby. Danica's family is so thankful for JTF to help with the cost of her prosthetic device as it can be difficult to keep up with rate she is outgrowing her legs. We are so excited to watch Danica grow and develop!
Shelby **NEW JTF KID**
Six-year-old Shelby was born with Tibial Hemimelia in her left leg and underwent a below knee amputation when she was 9 1/2 months old. She received her first prosthesis when turned one and has been walking unassisted with her prosthesis since she was 16 months of age. Shelby enjoys gymnastics and soccer and has also participated in the Toddler Run at the Desert Challenge Games in Arizona twice. We are so excited to help Shelby get a sports leg so she can continue on in her athletic endeavors and keep up with her peers as she grows!

Who we are
After losing both his legs below the knee in a boating accident in 2005, Jordan Thomas made the commitment to help other kids like him get the prostheses they needed to live active, healthy lives. Now the Jordan Thomas Foundation supports families who otherwise couldn’t afford it — allowing kids to live their dreams.
What we do
JTF provides children affected by limb loss with the prostheses they need throughout their growing years. Kids need to replace their prostheses every 18-24 months because they outgrow them just like clothes and shoes. We are committed to supporting our JTF Kids with the prostheses they need from the moment they join our family through the age of 18.
