Born missing part of both arms, Gabriel attended the three-day seminar as a Junior Counsellor, acting as a role model and showing younger Champs how to adopt the seminar theme, “Set the Bar High.” The seminar focused on the latest developments in artificial limbs, dealing with teasing and bullying and parenting an amputee child. As a member of CHAMP, Gabriel is eligible to receive financial assistance with artificial limbs and recreational devices.

 CHAMP is funded through public support of The War Amps Key Tag and Address Label Service. For more information, call 1 800 250-3030 or visit waramps.ca.
