“People ask what happened to my foot. They see the crutches and they assume I may have had a skiing accident or some sort of sports related injury. When I say, ‘no, it’s my hip’ they tend to ask more. I could be queuing in a bank having a most personal conversation with a complete stranger about my experience with bone cancer. We can react two ways to a bad situation in life: We can remain positive and find a way to get through it, or we can lay down and let it kill us. We have a choice! I chose to face my fears to feel alive. My life is about constantly facing challenges. I never stop. I never give up! I have an 11cm leg length discrepancy caused by two right hip replacement, both of which failed. I am currently one of less than ten people worldwide to have lived through what I have. I have to use crutches to walk, but I climb mountains, I do terrain treks and I completed the Fan Dance using them. I exercise as much as I can because it helps me both physically and mentally. I give talks and I set up a campaign called ‘Fighting Fit For Ewing’s’. I’ve realised that there are no real limits. Limits are something you put on yourself.”
