Kellie Lim was 8 years old when she was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. They amputated both legs and arms in hopes of stopping the disease. Her doctors had very little hope of her surviving childhood. She proved them all wrong.

Lim gets to use that experience in her new profession. She graduated from UCLA’s medical school in May and will be a doctor. She will specialize in childhood allergies and infections diseases, something she knows about first hand.

Lim has spent years in wheelchairs and she knows pain. Today she has two prosthetics legs, but does not have a prosthetic arm. She’s able to doing everything she needs to do with one arm.

Her experience will help her as she treats children. She’ll be starting her residency at UCLA Medical Center.
