Losing arm hasn’t slowed down 14-year-old Tennessee girl

PARSONS, Tenn. (WKRN) – From beauty pageants to paddle boarding, losing an arm is not slowing down a Parsons, Tennessee, teen.

We first introduced you to Chloe Monroe in July after she lost control of a Utility Terrain Vehicle and it flipped.

Chloe is working to make sure her tragic accident inspires others.

“It’s made me such a stronger person,” she told News 2.

Six surgeries later, the 14-year-old is back to somewhat of a normal teenage life.

“Learning how to work with one arm is definitely difficult, but I can do it,” she smiles.

Fourth of July weekend, Chloe was behind the wheel of a UTV with her 4-year-old sister Shyloh beside her.

Chloe lost control and the vehicle flipped, amputating her arm. Fortunately, her little sister wasn’t hurt.

“I tell her give me a hug and she hugs the arm first and then she hugs me and she calls it ‘Army,’” Chloe laughs.
