Top 10 Reasons Why It’s Great to Be an Amputee

Posted by Guest: Tanya Khvitsko on Sep 1, 2018 12:00:00 AM

About the author:

Let me take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Tanya Khvitsko, and I am a congenital double amputee from Belarus. My birth defects were caused by the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster, which took place in 1986. After spending parts of my childhood in the US, I made Kansas City my home in 2008.
