Helena’s right leg is about an inch and a half shorter than her left. She had her first surgery to lengthen the leg about 3 years ago. This Fall she competed in the Virginia State Ninja Warrior competition and came in 3rd place for 11 year old girls. She will go on to Nationals in February. Helena’s surgery was hard but taught her to be a fighter and showed her how incredibly strong she is. Dr. Rozbruch never doubted her so she never doubted herself.
