 PROFILE: Maja Kazazic

 

When Maja Kazazic was 16 years old and living in Bosnia during the war, she was severely injured by a mortar shell that killed six of her friends. As a result of her injuries, her leg was amputated and she was in a critical condition when the British aid worker Sally Becker found her in the basement of the besieged hospital. Sally drove her across the front line to safety and Maja was then flown to the States for treatment, not knowing if she would ever see her family again.

 Travel Information

There is a welcome change in TSA airport screening procedures for people with disabilities.  TSA has created a wallet-sized Medical Notification Card that fliers can download and fill in, noting their particular medical condition or device that may affect their screening.  Individuals can discreetly hand a security officer this card noting their medical condition or device, sparing travelers from having to go through excessive explanations and unwanted extra attention.  The cards do not exempt travelers from extra screenings, but hopefully, individuals will be more comfortable with the process.
