One-legged Cancer Survivor Makes A Halloween Costume Every Year, And He Just Revealed His Newest
Josh Sundquist uses his humor to overcome the social awkwardness that comes from being an amputee. He was 9 when he was diagnosed with cancer and doctors gave him a 50% chance of survival. He’s survived, but it came at a cost of him losing a leg, even despite the chemotherapy. However, Sundquist was cancer-free by 13, a ski racer by 16, and now, he’s a motivational speaker who never misses a Halloween to create one of a kind hilarious costumes!
“I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor,” Sundquist said. “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.” The inspiration for each of the costume is explained below!
