As a motivational speaker and author, he has devoted his life to helping others see on the bright side of life.
For years, his Halloween pranks have helped them look at the amusing side of having only one leg. He has spent his life helping people look on the bright side of life.
Josh Sunquist, who was only nine years old when he lost his leg, has come up with some hilarious ideas for costumes.
Josh celebrated Halloween as an IHOP restaurant the year before, dressing up in a costume made of a sign and a wooden frame (Oh, the irony).
In previous years, he has dressed up as a foosball player, a flamingo, and a gingerbread man from Shrek who had one of his legs eaten.
He has also been the one-legged lamp from A Christmas Story. This year, he went as Lumiere, the candle-holder from “Beauty and the Beast,” and he dressed up in gold to portray the character.
On his website, Josh explains, “In high school I wore a prosthetic all the time and didn’t want anyone to find out I was missing a leg.” This is because he didn’t want anyone to know that he was without a limb.
“But now I’m more comfortable with who I am and what I look like.”
People on the internet have leveled accusations against him, presuming that he is receiving payment from IHOP for doing the costume.
Josh, on the other hand, has stated that the pancake restaurant is not connected to him in any way, and that he does not even eat there because they do not offer gluten-free options.
Josh’s leg was amputated after he was diagnosed with a rare kind of bone cancer.
Since then, he has written two books, amassed ten million views on Youtube, and competed for the United States on both the Paralympic Ski Team and the Amputee Soccer Team.
