The Stephanie Decker foundation mainly serves to support children with prosthetics.
The Stephanie Decker Foundation was founded in 2012 and mainly serves to provide support for children amputees. Specifically, Stephanie and her husband, Joe, encourage children with prosthetics to get involved in sports. They want these children to experience the same opportunities as anyone else when it comes to sports, rather than feeling left out and on the sidelines.
The foundation strives to assist others in obtaining the best prosthetics available.
After having her legs amputated, Stephanie was fortunate enough to receive high-tech prosthetics. She now works hard to ensure that others have the same opportunities she did. Stephanie and Joe want to make sure that everyone has equal access to leading-edge prosthetics regardless of their financial situation.

In an effort to encourage children with prosthetics to get involved in sports, the Stephanie Decker Foundation hosts a sports camp every year.
