Man With One Leg Makes The Best Halloween Costumes

John Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer at nine years old and had a survival rate of only 50%.  He lost his leg but by the time he was 13, the cancer was completely gone.  At 16, he was into ski-racing and went on to represent the U.S. in the 2006 Paralympics in Torino, Italy.  John is also a motivational speaker and has become very well-known on social media due to his clever, inventive Halloween costumes for his amputation.

Each year he creates even better costumes than the year before.  This year is no exception!  He said that he has always dealt with the social discomfort of his disability by having a sense of humor.  Today, he is more comfortable with who he is and what he looks like.  He believes his Halloween costumes help him celebrate what makes him different from others.
