We are due to go into Production in April 2023.
Provided we complete all of our interviews, and post-production, I'm looking at around September/October 2023.
I was first introduced to amputees during the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games. It was an incredible experience for me! I learned at that time the abilities of athletes with differences, not their dis-abilities. Having been surrounded with people who had leg limb loss and spinal cord injuries gave me a new perception that I want to share with the non-disabled community. I want to show that those with leg limb loss are not to be pitied. I'd like for people to know that insurance doesn't cover the cost of their Adaptive Prosthetics to participate in certain sports. It should be the right of the person, for their health and other reasons, to choose to be active in sports. That truly would be Diversity Inclusion. Giving everyone the ability to participate in whatever activity they want to get involved!
In the leg limb loss community, if they are already not aware, grants, clinics and activities are in place in which they can get involved, and be a part of the community.
The three people include:
James Dixon; an adult that wants to have an active lifestyle. Only in the last 6 years was he able to live his life without limits. We will find out why.
Carson Fox: a teen that had his leg amputated 1 1/2 years ago. Carson wants to continue playing on his high school football team. He also wants to learn Track and Field and participate on the team as well.
Beatriz Hatz: Is a Paralympic Long Jump Athlete, living at the Chula Vista Training Center. Beatriz is training to get on the USA Track Team going to the 2024 Paris Paralympic Games.
Of course, I have others that will share their thoughts and insights. You'll have to watch to see just who they are!
Stay tuned. I would like to have this feature distributed nationally and internationally.
