Cody McCasland was delivered prematurely in 2001 missing several bones in his legs, and had other birth defects as well. He was not expected to live for more than a few days. Cody underwent multiple surgeries to correct defects in his organs and limbs. His legs were amputated in 2003. That same afternoon, Cody was caught trying to walk on his stumps! He was fitted with prosthetic legs and learned to walk immediately -and never looked back. He started using running prosthetics at age five.
Rest, in Peace Irena. You did more than the majority have even considered. I am proud of you. --- Al Gore winning a Nobel Peace prize instead of this incredible Human proves to me that it is just a worthless political sham. And it doesn't matter. I know who the true honorable hero is. I wish I could have met you. :)
