And I thought bubble wrap was just for fun!…
(Okay, and maybe for wrapping things prior to shipping.)
But Nashville, Tennessee’s Grayson Rosenberger found the best use of all!…
This 5th grader from Franklin Road Academy found a way to use bubble wrap as an “artificial skin” for amputees.
Yep, Grayson Rosenberger invented a one-of-a-kind cosmetic covering for prosthetic legs.
Grayson’s mother, Gracie Rosenberger, lost her legs as the result of injuries suffered in a 1983 traffic accident. Instead of allowing that to defeat her, she and husband Peter founded Standing With Hope, a ministry that reaches out in music and prayer to amputees. They recently expanded outside the U.S. to a clinic in Ghana, where prosthetic legs are custom-built for the poor.
Later this year, Grayson will visit Ghana with his parents to fit some patients with his low-cost invention.
We moved from Florida to Tennessee in 2001. All signs point to the fact that we will probably retire here — by choice. We L O V E Nashville! Our favorite places to live are just south of the City — we've had houses in Brentwood, Franklin, and Spring Hill. And we have properties in Leipers Fork, Cookeville, and Lewisburg. This site is where I share my best tips for moving your family to Nashville and/or visiting Nashville for the first time — with the ultimate goal of helping you find fun things to do in Williamson County and Davidson County.
