Red Cross honors Ottobock blogger

The Minnesota branch of the American Red Cross in May selected Ottobock blogger and above-knee amputee Kate Ross for its “Give Life Hero” award, which recognizes individuals whose commitment to blood donation plays an important role in their communities.

Ross underwent an above-knee amputation after a 2009 car accident, and became a dedicated blood donor after reflecting on the crucial role donation played in her 19 subsequent surgeries. She advocates for amputee rights as an Ottobock Momentum blogger at ottobockusmomentum.squarespace.com/bloggers.
