Dani burt’s (@dani.burt ) leg was amputated above the knee after a motorcycle crash in 2004 that left her in a coma for 45 days. she went on to become a doctor of physical therapy and the first-ever women’s world adaptive surfing champion — but it wasn’t easy. “one of the biggest things i wish people realized about amputees is that you don’t just go in and get a leg,” she says. “you’re now wearing something that’s not really a part of you, but you have to make it a part of you.”
on social media, dani saw the need for someone to be real about life as an amputee. “i needed to know i wasn’t alone, but that was near impossible to find,” she says. “i have the platform, privilege and responsibility to do that loud and clear. i know what it feels like to be knocked down hard and i hope to make the path i had to travel on a little less bumpy for others.” —reported by kassy cho (@kassy )
