Win like Branwen

When my daughter, Branwen, was three years old, she fell off of a swing. When I picked her up, I realized her femur was broken. We immediately went to Primary Children’s Hospital emergency room. She was put under general anesthesia so Dr. Klatt was able to set and cast her leg.


Branwen was in a wheelchair with a cast for nine weeks. Once the cast was removed, she spent more time in the wheelchair recovering. Within two months of recovery, she started karate and was able to break boards with her legs.
