Hello, I'm Lindsey, a bilateral trans-tibial amputee for nearly eleven years.
Despite undergoing amputations due to complications from diabetes, I've adapted well to my prostheses and have been walking unaided for almost ten years. Nothing holds me back!
As a Type 1 diabetic my amputations didn't stop me from living life to the fullest.
I believe in pushing boundaries and trying new things, refusing to let my disability limit me. Through sharing my story, I aim to inspire others to believe in themselves and their abilities, no matter the challenges they face. Staying active and healthy is crucial, especially with a disability. I'm excited for what the future holds!
ABOOAL played a vital role during my post-surgery recovery, providing invaluable support and information. Meeting fellow amputees going through similar experiences was incredibly impactful. Inspired by the people I met, I became a volunteer for the charity, driven by my passion for helping others and making a difference in my community.
As the Secretary of ABOOAL, I organise social events and manage our website and social media accounts, among other responsibilities.
Together, we strive to create a supportive community for amputees and their loved ones.
