ASPIRE: ASPIRE is a New York based non-for-profit organization formed in 1986 by David Balsley, P.T. and Paddy Rossbach, R.N. Since that time, ASPIRE has helped hundreds of children and, in some in stances, adults as well as their families learn how to live healthy active lifestyles after losing or being born without a limb. ASPIRE is a chapter of Disabled Sports USA and a member of the Amputee Coalition of America. Ultimately, their goal is to help children decide who they want to be based on their accomplishments, not their disability. The experiences ASPIRE provides help build confidence, friendship, courage, strength and character that will remain with them forever.
