Hi, I’m Tina Hurley (@Tinah214). I am a 33 year old former gymnast and Division 1 competitive cheerleading athlete. In 2015 I was diagnosed with a rare blood vessel condition in my legs called Popliteal Artery Entrapment Syndrome after it became increasingly difficult for me to walk and use my calve muscles without pain. Over the past few years, I have had multiple surgeries including muscle debulking, multiple artery bypass grafting, and endovascular artery interventions which were all unsuccessful at getting blood flow to my left leg.
In July 2016, after things got critical and all surgeries had failed, I underwent a left below-knee amputation to regain some quality of life. I suffered a complicated post-operative course resulting in a large wound requiring significant wound care for 8 months prior to a revision amputation in March 2017. I again had wound issues and my residual limb anatomy did not allow for prosthetic progression.
Just 3 months ago I had another amputation revision, which has gone well and will, after 13 surgeries, hopefully have been the last of the left leg surgical saga. My right leg is next up on the docket once the left leg stabilizes further. Despite the unfortunate nature of medical status, I truly have never been happier or more fulfilled. Heading into my future I realize, the more leg they take from me, the more heart I gain. You see, I have gained far more than I’ve lost… which is quite a statement given the concomitant loss of my marriage, house and dogs after my first amputation.
The intent of this charity is to spread hope, decrease suffering and to enhance physical/mental viability by providing customized services/ supplies to patients and their families during life changing medical circumstances.
