When Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer at nine years old, he was told he had a 50% chance of surviving. Despite chemotherapy, he lost a leg during treatment.
But by thirteen he was cancer free, and by sixteen was ski-racing. Today, Sundquist is a motivational speaker, famous on the social medias for his fantastically clever costumes that take full advantage of his disability.
“I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor,” Sundquist explains. “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.”
