At just sixteen years old, everyone's life is just beginning, but not for John, it was ending! There is however a fifty/fifty chance that his whole right leg would be amputated. This fateful decision starts the journey few have undertaken, but how does it impact his family, friends, work, and the rest of his life, holistically transitioning from being able-bodied to disabled?
