At the young age of 9,  Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer.  At the time he was told he only had a 50/50 chance of living.  Despite having chemo, Josh lost his leg, but by thirteen he was cancer-free, and by sixteen, he was ski-racing.  Now Sundquist is a motivational speaker that’s become famous on social media for his clever, amputation-incorporating Halloween costumes.  He’s a perfect example who not only doesn’t let any setback get in his way, but he’s embraced his condition in a way that’s incredibly creative, inspiring, and flat out hilarious.

“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.”  The inspiration for his costumes are market in the below set of pictures.
