Amputees deliver ample inspiration

“Our message is a simple one, a visual one,” Sapere said. “As we ride up as amputees, we are saying there is life after amputation. After trauma, you can choose to come to a facility like this or choose to sit in bed feeling sorry for yourself and let life pass you by.”
