Meet Kayden Kinckle. He was born with omphalocele, a birth defect in which abdominal organs have developed outside of the body. When Kayden was born, his umbilical cord so so severely wrapped around his legs and feet that it caused some deformity.
In order for Kayden to ever learn to walk, he would need to have his left leg and right foot amputated. The surgery was completed in January, and by July 4th Kayden was ready to take his first steps on his new prosthetics. His mother caught the moment on video, and it quickly went viral.
Kayden’s tenacity and positive outlook on his situation has been inspiring many who have viewed and shared the video.
Go Kayden! You’ve totally “got this.”
