Tessa Puma was a happy, fun-loving little girl until at 6-years-old she became very sick. Her family thought she had the flu, but she quickly fell extremely ill. "It turned out strep got into her bloodstream causing a flesh-eating bacteria," her parents explained.
But Tessa turned tragedy into triumph shortly after recovering when within just a week of getting her first prosthetic, she learned how to walk. The following week, she was back in the dance studio!
Now two years later, Tessa takes the stage and captivates audiences with her passionate routines!
