Lary León Molina, with multiple amputation. A positive attitude that breaks the mold

What is normal and what is different?

Love, tenacity and imagination are the weapons used by Lary, a very special mermaid who is capable of showing that being “different” strengthens and enriches, not only oneself but everyone around her. The universe provides us with infinite capacities, we are the ones who decide to take advantage of them, or not.

John Edward Heath, after having his leg amputated, this former Marine won’t let anything stop him

“I’m the first amputee a lot of pro athletes have ever seen, let alone lifting the amount of weight that I do,” said Heath. “They don’t know the struggle of what it is being an amputee, and wearing a prosthetic. When I take off my running blade and take off my stump sleeve, and they see a large-scale of skin and blisters, they’re like, ‘Yo, what?’ And I’m like, ‘What?’ And they’re like, ‘How are you training on that?’ It just opened up a whole different conversation.”
