Zavi was born with a little foot that had only three toes and nearly no ankle. His parents immediately started researching treatment options for his condition, called fibular hemimelia.
When he was 8 months old, Zavi underwent an amputation of his right leg. Once his first prosthesis was ready, Zavi began physical therapy. To everyone’s amazement, he needed only a week to adjust to this new device.
Now 9 years old, Zavi enjoys many sports, but baseball is his favorite. He has played competitively since he was 4 and hopes to become a professional baseball player.
With the help of Shriners Hospitals for Children — Tampa, Zavi has been able to experience things the same as other children. Zavi’s perseverance and positive outlook make him an inspiration to everyone. He said his experience working with Foreigner made him “happy” and that everyone treated him “like a rock star.”
“My family and I will always remember this day,” his mom, Aleisha, said.
