am 13 years old, and I have been playing girl's basketball, in different
leagues, for many years now. After breaking my nose more than once during games,
I was thinking about the possibility of not having the sport I absolutely love,
in my life. It really was a distressing time for me. Then I heard about
this custom made "mask" being worn by the pros. I did some research on the
internet and found the man that makes these masks; Jeremy Murray from the
Michigan Hand and Sports Rehab center. My prayers were answered and I am
back in the game!
The mask has become part of me; part of my uniform.
During games, my face really takes a beating and with the mask on, I do not
even blink. I no longer realize the pummeling my face takes because of the
protection that the mask gives me.
The great part is that I did not
have to fly to Michigan to have the mask made. I had my orthopedist,
Dr. Douglas Avella, make a mold of my upper face and I shipped it off to
Mr. Murray. That was it! Done! The mask came back a perfect fit, and I
feel alive again! As corny as it sounds, having this protective face mask
that fits "like a glove" has truly been a gift from above! Thanks Jeremy Murray!!
