Get Inspired: Josh Sundquist

Diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer when he was nine years old, Josh Sundquist had his left leg amputated a year later. As a child he felt so self-conscious he was afraid to go to a public swimming pool in case other people stared at him.

 

 

“Everyone who says ‘oh it’s fake, he doesn’t really have one leg, or there’s no way someone can make that kind of physical transformation…┬áTo be honest I kind of think that some people look at it and they are like, this is so unbelievable, it’s too good to be true, and in some ways they don’t want to admit that it is a possibility for a person to do that… because if it was then they might have a responsibility to get in really good shape themselves.”
