Accept no limits: Amputee Story

Amputee

Jacky

Accept no limits despite having my leg amputated

Hi, I am Jacky. I lost my left leg to cancer (Sarcoma) a few years ago. It was a total shock when I first was diagnosed with cancer and then another shock when I was told my leg would need to be amputated. I was determined not to let my disability stop me from achieving.

9 months ago I decided to take up running. I decided I didn't want to be good at running, I wanted to excel and inspire others to get fit and healthy. When I started running I couldn't even manage 3 miles. 9 months later and I'm running half marathons. I am hoping to add marathons and ultra to my list. Accept no limits.
