When Josh Sundquist heard about his cancer diagnosis first, he was nine years old. The doctors told him that his life was at big risk and his survival chance was 50%. He lost his left leg but at the age of thirteen he was 100% cancer free. He went ski-racking by sixteen and also represented the U.S in the 2006 Paralympics in Torino, Italy. Josh is now a motivational speaker and is very famous on social media for his amazing Halloween costumes.
“I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor,” Sundquist said according to Bored Panda. “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.”
This year, he went with the same Halloween tradition and down below you can check out what his costume is.
