“The Doctor’s said because of the cancer and because i am a Hip Disarticulated i will not even wear a prosthetic leg.
Thanks to God, Stan Patterson, all the POACFL team, my loved wife , family and friends for all the support.
Now I’m able to walk and also to run, we are training very hard to make a full marathon.
I want to change the perception of the people with disability, we are able to do even amazing things.
‘Disability is in our mind, not in our body’.
Thanks God, Stan Patterson , my loved wife , family and friends for all the support and to make this possible.”
