“Bonnie's 11th day on this earth started with her crying, the usual sound of a newborn. This cry was different though, and although she was just over a week old, I knew something wasn't right. She was screaming, but her eyes were closed and she wasn't really awake.”

For many people, especially children, feeling so 'different' to others can be really hard hitting, so we think it's crucial to highlight those heroes who are challenging the stigma surrounding amputation like Jack Eyre taking on Ninja Warrior UK
