Know who loves Halloween and won't let amputation slow him down? THIS GUY!

Josh Sundquist LOVES Halloween. Let me say that again. Josh Sundquist LOVES LOVES LOVES Halloween. When Josh was nine years old he had to have his leg amputated due to a rare form of bone cancer, but Josh never let that slow him down. He went on to ski for the U.S. in the 2006 Paralympics in Torino, Italy, and is a member of the U.S. Amputee Soccer Team. In addition, he is also a motivational speaker, author, and comedian. But probably my favorite thing about Josh is his love of Halloween. Specifically, his love of Halloween costumes.

See, while the rest of us might go as whatever we find on whatever shelf we stumble across while buying broccoli, Josh thinks about costumes year round and spends months working on these designs. He sees Halloween as a time to reach people in a unique way - a chance to reach them with humor and show them that if you look at things from a different angle, really, anything is possible.
