RHONY: Jake Lillis receives his running legs, “Oh my gosh!!!”

RHONY: Young athlete Jake Lillis receives running legs

“Oh my gosh!” young athlete and amputee, Jake Lillis, recieves his first pair of running legs!

Physical Therapist: “Are you ready for it?”

Jake: “Well probably, I don’t know about the balance yet…”

This moment made me genuinely happy.  The joy on this kid’s face is real and priceless.  While Aviva can be quite the little shit stirrer, she actually has a surprizing sense of priority.

Aviva Drescher, herself an amputee, is the national spokesperson for One Step Ahead Foundation, a charity focusing on giving children with limb loss and other physical disabilities the chance to experience friendship and build confidence through sports.
