In May of 2019, Eric and his family traveled from New Mexico to North Phoenix for the gift of a Spider-Man inspired Helping Hand provided by the MORE Foundation.
Eric’s helping hand is an elbow powered prosthetic, so with just the bend of his elbow, Eric can control the fingers of the hand and is discovering new skills and activities. Since receiving his Helping Hand, Eric is able to ride a bike and his parents report he is showing confidence he did not have before.
With his new Helping Hand and his newfound confidence, Eric is a superhero to us all.
Want To Help?
You can help more children like these to create custom hands and give them the opportunity to learn many skills we take for granted.
The Foundation began operating as a tax exempt
private foundation (501(c)3), with the Board of Trustees, in 2011. With the support of its
initial sponsor, MORE quickly built programs to
conduct musculoskeletal research studies that
served the public interest.
