Timothy Rhinehart

As a native South Carolinian, I grew up trail riding and playing "Cowboys and Indians" on horseback in Kings Mountain State Park.  As a teenager, I began bull riding and became very involved in several rodeo circuits.  At 24 years old, I had a horrible car accident and lost my right leg just below the knee.  During my rehabilitation process, I worked with South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation and also found Scot Thompson a CP with Advanced Prosthetics.  After months of rehabilitation and physical therapy, I was finally received my first prosthetic leg.  Scot has been a blessing.  He offers advice and instruction every step of the way.  

I am a welder by trade.  Like thousands of others, I was caught in a round of layoffs due to the recession. After submitting numerous applications, I found a temporary job.  However, I continue to search for a permanent job in the welding industry.  During my financial struggles, Scot made my temporary legs at no cost.  Later, I received funding with SC Vocational Rehab which helped me cover the cost of my permanent leg. With everyone’s help, I was able to go back to work 11 months after the accident.  In the beginning, I started working part time 2-3 hours a day, but within two months I able to work 40 hours a week.  Advanced Prosthetics and Scot have given me a chance to get my feet back under me!
