Ellen Jumps to her Feet after Hearing Boys Incredible Words on Being Different
Little Ezra Frech is only 9-years-old, but he’s already been through a lot in his life. Ezra was born with one finger on his left hand and a leg that was curved; doctors amputated the leg when he was 3 and surgically moved a thumb to his left hand so that he could have two digits on one hand.
Despite living the past 6 years with a prosthetic leg, Ezra has come to be quite the athlete! He plays basketball, soccer, football, and more. He set 7 national records! Ezra was even one of the Sports Kids of the Year in Sports Illustrated.
“I’ve always loved it since I was a baby. I’ve always loved being very active, having fun, playing with my friends. But when I play sports I feel at home. I don’t feel different. I feel like I’m just one of the guys.”
His athleticism may have been what got Ezra on the Ellen Show, but it is because of his incredible words of encouragement that the world will remember him.
