My daughter - Danielle Smith is a 20 year old below the knee amputee who strives to make the best out of every day. Her amputation is not a barrier for her. In 2004 we were visiting family in Cyprus (shortly after she lost her leg at 13) and came across the Team GB Olympic swimming team in their training camp. She swam with them and had good advice from them and Bill Sou - the then training coach (and himself an amputee). The Team GB truly inspired her and I think she inspired them. Danielle has helped a young amputee who lost his leg in Afganistan by giving some sound advice (and I think other advice that only an amputee could give) She is being put forward as a counsellor to others who suffer limb loss and has been invited to Headley Court to talk to some of the patients there. I feel that Danielle is just what you are looking for not 100% physically perfect but is willing to show the world that it doesnt matter a jot !
