Now, one year later, Christian lost his left leg but has recovered to the point where his mobility is good and mentions standing for long periods of time is his biggest challenge.

The community pitched in to make his home in Frankfort more accessible during the recovery phase.

Christian is looking forward to completing his degree at the Crossing School in Frankfort.
