His enthusiasm is infectious and he inspires those who know and meet him. Booty refuses to let his amputation define him.
Jim Bruce, known by everyone as “Booty,” has been a part of the AALOS family as both an orthotic and prosthetic patient for years. His path to prosthetic wear is typical of many amputees who have diabetes and poor circulation. Booty battled a troubling wound and infection that required lengthy periods in wound treatment clinics and slowly led to amputation of parts of his foot and orthotic treatment to encourage the healing process. Finally, in July of 2015, Booty decided to move on with his life and made the decision to have a below the knee amputation which offers a good degree of success in healing and a return to normal activities.
Booty is a fixture in the Pike County community as a partner in Horne Beverage Company. He is also a member of the Troy Rotary Club. His enthusiasm is infectious and he inspires those who know and meet him. Booty refuses to let his amputation define him. He says the condition that led him to the amputation did not change his life for worse but opened up new avenues and relationships. Booty holds his family in high regard and will continue to be a loving and supportive husband and father and an inspiration to anyone he knows or meets.
