Sharing a triumphant "high five"
with her foster mother and physical therapist, 4-year-old Linsey Ponfick celebrates
mastering a new exercise. Linsey breathes deeply and reaches higher plateaus
of quality life thanks to a rib prosthesis invented by a Health Science Center orthopaedic
surgeon. Lauri Dahl (left), physical therapist at Santa Rosa Children's Hospital, and
Sue Ponfick are major contributors to this extraordinary child's victories.
