When he was only 9-years-old, Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer. The prognosis was a 50% chance of survival. Despite chemotherapy, he still ended up losing his leg. But at age 13, he emerged cancer free. At age 16 he was actually ski-racing!
Overcoming cancer and dealing with only having one leg led him to become a motivational speaker. He has since become a popular figure on social media due to his epic Halloween costumes which try to incorporate his leg amputation in very clever, and extremely funny, ways.
Here’s what Josh has to say about his condition:
“I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor. But now I’m more comfortable with who I am and what I look like, and I guess with these Halloween costumes you could even say that I celebrate what makes me different. Which may be either weird or refreshing, depending on your perspective.”
Check out the incredible Halloween costumes he has come up with in recent years and the inspiration behind them. Be sure to share Josh and his awesome Halloween spirit with friends and family!
