Damiere, who likes to be called Bubba, lives with his parents in Brooksville, FL. He lost both legs above the knee following surgery due to a congenital birth defect. He is 5 years old and has the greatest smile. Before being seen at Shriner’s Children’s Hospital, Bubba got around by walking on his stumps. Now he has prosthetic legs and gets around well both on his own and at great speed on his new tricycle.
