A University of Arizona student is the new leader of a unique global group for children who are missing limbs.
Sami Madden , a 21-year-old religious studies major who was born without fully-formed arms or legs, was recently elected president of I-CAN, which stands for the International Child Amputee Network.
In his new role as president of I-CAN, Madden hopes to continue increasing awareness of kids with "limb differences" and in helping those kids realize their potential. The group caters to children who have been affected by limb differences at an early age, whether it's congenital or from trauma.
