Don't let your disability limit or discourage you

Cancer took my leg but it didn't take my mobility and strength

Hi, Im Asha. At age 21 I was diagnosed with Oestoscarcoma, a bone cancer which later took my foot above the knee. Before I was diagnosed with cancer it was hard mobilising because my knee was swollen and bent which took my confidence. By the time I was diagnosed, the cancer had already spread to my lungs but luckily it was caught early. I had nine months of chemo-therapy and four surgeries. I have been in remission from February 2016. Cancer took my leg but it didn't take my mobility and strength! I'm happy as can be and grateful for my supportive family friends. I can do whatever I put my mind too... so can you. Don't let your disability limit or discourage you!
