Talking limb loss and GB paracycling with working supermum, Sally Hurst
Play • 53 min

In this episode we discuss:

  • Learning to thrive after life changing surgery
  • How Sally's perception of her prosthesis and her body has changed over the years
  • How the 2012 paralympics was her inspiration for realising that sport was still a possibility despite her amputation
  • How she fell into the world of elite sport almost by chance
  • How cancer has taught her to say yes to opportunities
  • How you start to cycle on a hill if you only have one leg
  • How Sally dealt with being diagnosed with cancer a second time
  • The practicalities of living as an amputee and the pros and cons of using a prosthesis.

Sally epitomises tenacity and resilience and what it means to ‘move against cancer’. She is self-effacing and modest to a fault.

You will come away from this conversation with an urge to ‘say yes’ to something that scares you.
