Luke’s Clubfeet Story

My name is Luke, and I am a 14-year-old boy. It has been hard through life trying to be good at sports like my dad. Because of Clubbed feet, people used to make fun of me for not being able to run fast enough, or it hurts every time I kick a ball. Everyone used to ask me “What is clubbed feet”, and it would annoy me so much since I would have to explain it to everyone.

Both of my parents were a little worried I would have down syndrome, but it turned out I didn’t. Although, my little brother, when he was born He did have Down Syndrome and one of his feet were clubbed.

I am only 14, but I already know that even though I have clubbed feet I can turn out to do great things. And anyone reading my short story of my clubbed feet if you keep working on strengthening your legs and stretching your tendons you can do almost anything you want to do.

    Luke I so enjoyed reading your story and how you have coped with your clubfeet. I wish I could help in some way but they are your feet and you should be as proud of them as you can be, they’re special to you! Do you wear any special kind of footwear or just normal stuff?
