        Breezy Bochenek was featured at the 2013 CAF "A Celebration of Heroes, Heart and Hope" gala in New York City on June 12, 2013. That night a star was born as she captured the heart of all the event's guests. As she was welcomed on stage by her role model and mentor, CAF Spokesperson Sarah Reinertsen, she told the audience she wanted to show her gratitude for them and CAF with a special song. Watch the video of Breezy singing here - https://vimeo.com/68565439 At just 11 years of age, Brianne “Breezy” Bochenek has marshaled more strength and maturity than most adults do during their lifetime. The youngest of five children, Breezy’s tight-knit family was devastated when what seemed like a sports injury was diagnosed as an aggressive form of bone cancer. With inspiration and mentoring from CAF’s Sarah Reinertsen, Breezy endured chemotherapy and then made the tough decision to amputate her leg. Breezy’s positive attitude and resilience left her family breathless. “If this had to happen to one of us, I’m glad it was me, cause I know I can handle it,” says Breezy. “I’m thinking about all the kids in the world who are dying because they have no food and water, and it makes me realize what I am going through isn’t that big of a deal.” CAF promised Breezy a running foot when she was ready, and now that promise has been kept. Armed with her Össur Flex Run Jr. she is determined to be a role model for other kids and adults who are battling cancer. She also has bigger goals: “Sarah was the first above-knee woman to finish Ironman. I want to be the youngest.”
