Stefan was very active growing up. He played sports in high school, loved to run and bike and often went backpacking with his family. Stefan joined the U.S. Army because he wanted to help and serve his country.

While he was deployed, he lost his legs after an IED went off. He spent months in the hospital recovering and underwent many surgeries to save as much of his legs as possible. Stefan turned to others for inspiration during his recovery and kept pushing himself to work hard. With technology and advancements in prosthetics, Stefan has freedom to participate in the activities he loves. Watch Stefan’s story below.
