Carrissa is thirty inches tall and weighs 60lbs.She’s muscular and yet very feminine. As a Quadruple Amputee she is a wonder wherever she goes. It never fails, when she is out in the community, others notice. She doesn’t seem to mind everyone staring in her direction. Many just approach her and she is usually very receptive to their curiosity. She is usually the central focus wherever she goes. Carrissa is a Happy and Brave little girl of “eighteen.”

Carrissa has led a two prong life. One prong is filled with surgeries and the other prong is her courage and tenacity and how positively she incites those around her. Carrissa has suffered through a myriad of challenges her whole life. Heart surgery and seizures in the first year of life and amputations of all four limbs to start her third year. Several  colon surgeries to fix her insides. The scars from her life are, noticeable to all. Carrissa shines and uplifts everyone around her. She is absolutely an amazing Young Lady. She will wear diapers her entire life. No Surgery photos here. These photos explain her life well enough.
