Sixth-Grade Basketball Player Danika Williams

Danika Williams is an 11-year-old sixth-grade basketball player at Ellis Middle School in Advance. Williams was born with a limb deficiency, bilateral congenital tibial deficiency. She didn’t have a tibia in one leg and only half a tibia in the other. So at 15-months-old her parents, Sabrina and Jason Williams, had to make the decision — amputate her legs up to her thighs or save her legs and have her spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. They decided to have her legs amputated. She now wears high-tech prosthetics — and nothing stops her.
