We are thrilled she chose the path she did as an amputee and honored to be a part of her life.
Doris Luster is quite the personality at AALOS and in the community. Like so many others, Doris suffers from diabetes which led to her below the knee amputation. In 2013 Doris was deciding which path her life as an amputee would take. Would she ever be normal again or would she embrace her “new normal” and be the Doris we have all come to know and love. Shortly after providing her first prosthesis, we saw the smile that has become so familiar over the years. Along with her smile is her sense of style that is “one in a million”.
Doris is very outgoing and willing to help others with an amputation as a peer counselor. She makes herself available for educational events as a patient model for physical therapists as well as students in the masters program for prosthetics and orthotics at Alabama State University. The word “no” doesn’t exist in her life. She will find another way to get things done. It is always exciting when we see Doris’ name on the schedule especially in the fall and winter when hats become a big part of her wardrobe. We are thrilled she chose the path she did as an amputee and honored to be a part of her life.
