Power Ranger Prosthetics

5-Year-Old Boy Gets Power Ranger Prosthetics Thanks to Crowd-Funding

Five-year-old Marshall Janson proves every day that no one should feel sorry for him because he lost his arms and legs after contracting meningitis as a baby. But thanks to new prosthetic blades he received as a result of a crowd-funding project, it's even more apparent that he's as strong as a Power Ranger. According to his mom, Stephanie Harris, Janson was frustrated that he couldn't move around like other kids in his class and was self-conscious about being shorter using the prosthetics he acquired in 2009. Unable to afford new prosthetic blades that cost nearly $20,000, she launched an appeal on the crowd-funding site Handstand, explaining that Janson couldn't walk comfortably. Donations poured in, and the manufacturer let Janson choose his favorite design — Power Ranger.

To see how the new blades help Janson keep up with the rest of the class, read the whole story on Huffington Post.
