On September 2, 2013, Diana Nyad completed her record-breaking 100.86-mile, 52-hour 54-minute swim from Cuba to Key West, Florida. Aesthetic Prosthetics® played a role in her journey by designing and creating a custom-made silicone mask to protect her from deadly box jellyfish stings during her swim. It feels like yesterday and it’s hard to believe so much time has passed, yet we remain in awe of her achievement and are still so proud to have been involved!
