Davie prosthetist gives Haitian Amputee Soccer Team new limbs

(DAVIE, FLA) — Thanks to a Broward County doctor, Mark Selleck, members of Haiti’s Amputee National Soccer Team can ditch their crutches for new prosthetics.

These are men who lost their limbs in the 2010 Haitian earthquake.  Since then, many needed crutches to walk.

Dr. Selleck, who is a certified prosthetist,  owns South Beach Orthotics and Prosthetics in Davie.

One player says the prosthetics will not only allow them to play in next month’s Amputee World Cup in Turkey, but they’ll also allow them to seek employment afterward.

The team’s manager tells WPLG, Local 10 that the players’ families back home sometimes look at the amputees as a curse, but now they’ll be considered a blessing.
