AllisonCompton

Allison Compton is on a one-woman mission to change perceptions surrounding disabilities. Her passion comes from wearing a prosthetic leg her entire life and learning to use it as an advantage, inspiring others along the way.

If I can help change somebody being told that they are not allowed to play because of their gender, race, ability... then I think I've really made an impact.

— Allison Compton

Born with a rare condition that caused her femur to be underdeveloped Allison's leg did not fully form causing her right leg to be about half the length of her left. The disability created various obstacles and challenges while growing up, especially since her love of sports and was always active. Doctors told my parents that there were two options – to amputate my leg up to my hip or try a new procedure to make my leg more functional.

Three major surgeries, all of which put nearly the whole right side of her body in a cast and a procedure in which Allison's foot was turned around so that the Achilles Tendon acts as a knee joint for her prosthetic.

Over the years, Allison has had many prosthetic legs that she affectionately calls Freeda, which to her stands for “freedom.” It is incredible how a prosthetic or any difference can actually enable and empower you.
