Amputee with hope
I was a healthy sporty teenager who used to be adventurous, but trying crazy stuff cost me a lot. I liked the idea of Parkour, it just feels like there are no borders, just jump it or climb your way around walls and buildings. One time I did a crazy stunt, I was on the roof of building and tried to jump to the next building's emergency stairs, I landed poorly, my leg got stuck between steel bars, it got broken and injured. That seemed curable but gangrene got to my leg through the wound. It had to be cut off from under the waist. I can't describe how that felt for a teenager that used to be full of life and power. I suffered from depression for 3 years, failed my classes and lost the will to live. But with therapy and inspiring handicapped people I got back on track again, especially after watching the Paralympic games, I watched them with passion and thought how great that they have the power to be professional athletes, So I decided to be one. I saw amputee swimmers who the same issue like me, and wanted to start training. It's been two years and the city mayor helped provide all I needed to train and participate in contests. I'm thankful to everyone who inspired me to get my life back!

Special siblings
“Twin brothers were born in an American family in 1978. The brother, who was five minutes older, had a healthy heart, and the younger one also suffered from cardiomyopathy and cerebral palsy. However, this tragic circumstance only brought the boys closer. The "older" brother always took care of the "younger", helped him, motivated him. And even when a sick boy at the age of 13 needed the heart of a voluntary donor, a healthier brother wanted to commit suicide so that his heart could be transplanted to his brother. The vital organ was found on time, and the "older" boy went to the studies of a biochemical engineer after school to invent a cure for the disease for his brother and other people. But fate determined otherwise. He became an actor and even a Hollywood star. And the younger brother became a lawyer who defends the rights of children with cerebral palsy. Today, Ashton and Michael Kutcher are active in charity work together. ❤️" (as seen on The Awesome page)

The difference between disability and handicap.
These are two terms that are often used interchangeably, BUT, I am here to show you the difference between two of them, based on my own experience as I work in a medical setting. Ahem, a person with disability does not necessarily mean that this person is handicapped, becasue some people DO HAVE disabilities but do not stop there, they do not let these disabilities affect their performance and functionality. One of the patients I cannot forget had a progressive disease that affected her vision until she lost 80% of her ability to see. The lady was a KG teacher and used to love reading stories for the kids all the time, she actually continued her work, the school helped her get braille-printed stories to read for kids and her husband used to read her the stories she wanted to teach to children every night over and over so she can memorize all the details and describe the pictures attached as she was actually seeing them! So, not being a handicapped individuals is most of the times a choice, if only you, and your beloved people, believed in what you can do.
