This is one of those amazing, inspiring stories that you just can’t miss! Breezy Bochenek was a typical 9-yr.-old until 2011, when she was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer just above her left knee. Breezy quickly had a life-altering choice to make – try to save her leg and live a more sedentary life, or amputate her leg and be as active as possible. Inspired by Sarah Reinertson completing the Ironman with an above the knee prosthetic, Breezy said: “if Sarah was the first women with a prosthetic to finish the Ironman, maybe I can be the youngest.” After treatment, Breezy was declared cancer free. She and her family are now involved in many paths to give back and help others, including being part of the Challenged Athletes Foundation. Breezy completed her first Triathlon on May 4th, only 3 weeks after receiving her running leg granted by CAF.
