APRIL: As promised in honor of limb loss awareness month I’ll be sharing stories & facts about limb loss: today, I’ll start w/ a lil reminder of how I became an awesome bionic babe. It was the spring of 2004 when I started feeling sharp pain in my pelvic area, after countless doctors visit & lots of pill poppin— 6 months later I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma ( bone cancer). Was going through chemo until one day I learned that I also had lung cancer. After several chemo treatment I had a hip replacement that was unsuccessful so eventually had to get my leg amputated the same year I graduated high school. My type of amputation is called hemipelvectomy and only 1% of amputees have it, most of whom decide to not use prosthetic limbs. (Which is why I think prosthetic companies don’t make products that cater to us) because my amputation is so high it makes it almost impossible to walk without crutches. A couple of challenges I face are severe back & knee pain, phantom pain and weird comments from strangers. Things that make me cool: my badass @alleles leg covers (I have 18), always finding ways to empower other amputee women, the fact that I only have to paint 5 toe nails and my obsession with having my leg match my outfit. #mamacax

This ride helps raise money for the @whiteheart foundation and their mission to directly serve the needs of our severely injured warriors. Next to me in this picture is Triple Amputee US Army Spc Jose Martinez @1guru1 This stud is an american hero, not only for his dedication and service to our country but also for his passion and fervor for life. Jose lost both legs and his right arm in Kandahar and he can still kick my ass and keep us laughing while doing it. He's an inspiration for all of us on how to overcome insurmountable obstacles with positivity and heart. He is the best of us, and we celebrate him along with all the other men and women that dedicated their lives to something greater than themselves. #neverforgotten Click on the @whiteheart link to donate!!

See The Rock's full post here:

I’ve met some very inspiring (and bad ass) people in my lifetime.

At my SKYSCRAPER Hong Kong premiere, I met Dwayne Fernandes.
Born with a severe bone defect, at 11yrs old Dwayne made the heart breaking and courageous choice to have both his legs replaced with prosthetic limbs. 
He made a choice that not having his legs wasn’t going to be his “excuse” for not doing things, but rather his “reason” for doing things. 
And he did just that. 
He’s a multiple world record holder, having competed in 8 international stair climb marathons. He captured the world’s attention in 2008 with his first international vertical marathon, completing the 1,504 stair Sydney Tower climb in 23.49 minutes. 
This win set the FIRST WORLD RECORD FOR AMPUTEES. 
A real honor meeting this man and certainly an honor to portray an amputee in my film. 
Playing the character gave me a very VERY small glimpse into the daily struggles, heartbreak and above all else, the COURAGE these men, women & kids go thru on a daily basis. 
Thank you brother for inspiring all of us and glad you loved the movie. 
Ps, you’re the much cooler and way more bad ass, Dwayne. 👊🏾  #SKYSCRAPER #GlobalPressTour  #DwayneFernandes #NoExcuses

Though I survived the brutal crash, the course of my life was forever changed. What followed were over 40 surgeries to repair massive brain and jaw damage, broken bones and burns. Ultimately, I would need to have my leg amputated above the knee.
Climbing started out as a tool to push me through recovery, and now I have been using it as a tool to pay it forward. I am excited to announce that my Mt. Elbrus climb September 3 thru 13th, the highest peak in Europe and one of my seven summits, will be dedicating to raising donations for the non-profit @GLAM4GOOD.
When I was initially hurt I struggled with my self-esteem and really suffered with body image and GLAM4GOOD was their to help.
GLAM4GOOD works with women and their families going through life's toughest challenges by providing new wardrobes, personal care essentials, and self-esteem building services to empower dignity, health, hope and happiness. You can find the GLAM4GOOD team working in natural disaster zones, homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses, on military bases, in hospitals and schools.
GLAM4GOOD is an incredible organization that has supported me and I now sit on the Advisory Board and am honored to be able to support this non-profit that does so much for women and girls.
Thank you for helping to empower my climb, the fourth of my seven summits, to make a difference in the lives of women and their families in support of GLAM4GOOD! Donate today on the link in the bio above!”

Having a bit of a frustrating time at the minute with deadlifts as the hook on my arm keeps slipping off but on the plus side we discovered two new movements I can do, seated barbell snatch and L-sit holds 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I’m new to this CrossFit game as you all know and so the more I do the more I discover and today I discovered a thing called ‘Hero Workouts’ which are dedicated to military men and women who have paid the ultimate price in service which for me is a huge motivator to push harder because I/we have the great privilege of life which means that we can push harder, and we should push harder because others don’t have that privilege!

Today’s modified workout was called ‘The Lumberjack 20’ and consisted of

20 Deadlifts
200m Ski Erg
20 Kettlebell Swings
200m Ski Erg
20 Burpees (modified)
200m Ski Erg
20 Pull Ups (modified)
200m Ski Erg
20 Box Jump Overs (modified)
200m Ski Erg
20 DB Cleans
200m Ski Erg •

That’s obviously after a warm up and a section of strength training 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Big shoutout to my trainer Ben for always putting in so much effort figuring out and planning these workouts for me because without him I’d have no idea what to do 😂😂😂

‘Anyone who knew Violet well could tell she was thinking hard, because her long hair was tied up in a ribbon to keep it out of her eyes’ - Series of Unfortunate Events
-

There is a very interesting relationship between women and their hair. We are controlling it, taming it, or freeing it somehow using these as metaphors for our souls. Styling it to reflect our personalities, long, short, colored, wavy, curly, straight, shaved, woven, braids, up, down, ponytails and messy buns. When a woman wants to ‘reinvent herself’ one of the first notable things she does is change her hair. -
-
At times a woman’s hair can reveal her inner thoughts or her attitudes. Sometimes I have mine down and in my face if I am feeling shy or I am throwing it up out of my face because I am ready to take on an awesome project.
-
-
Having the ability to interact with our hair is important for women. 4 years ago a teenager with a limb difference shared with me that she was annoyed that she was unable to put up her hair on her own. The features of her arm made reaching behind her head, gathering hair, and navigate a ponytail holder a challenge. She shared that she had to decide in the morning if she wanted her hair up or down for school and having her mom complete the task. This worked fine in elementary and middle school sure, however now as a high schooler this became less fine- wanting to develop independence she asked how I put up my hair.
-
-
We sat there on the grass exploring various stratigues and after a little while she did it on her own! It was messy and imperfect sure, but it was hers. She owned it. She was beautiful and powerful! -

In that moment I thought “This is what I want to do for the rest of my life” -

2 years later I started an Occupational Therapy program at Boston University.

Here’s to more projects and the freedom to express ourselves with our hair 💁🏻‍♀️

Read every word! ❤️“During my second tour of duty in Afghanistan as a Marine, my helicopter fell from the sky and crashed to the ground.
Though I survived the brutal crash, the course of my life was forever changed. What followed were over 40 surgeries to repair massive brain and jaw damage, broken bones and burns. Ultimately, I would need to have my leg amputated above the knee.
Climbing started out as a tool to push me through recovery, and now I have been using it as a tool to pay it forward. I am excited to announce that my Mt. Elbrus climb September 3 thru 13th, the highest peak in Europe and one of my seven summits, will be dedicated to raising donations for the non-profit @GLAM4GOOD.
When I was initially hurt I struggled with my self-esteem and really suffered with body image and GLAM4GOOD was their to help.
GLAM4GOOD works with women and their families going through life's toughest challenges by providing new wardrobes, personal care essentials, and self-esteem building services to empower dignity, health, hope and happiness. You can find the GLAM4GOOD team working in natural disaster zones, homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses, on military bases, in hospitals and schools.
GLAM4GOOD is an incredible organization that has supported me and I now sit on the Advisory Board and am honored to be able to support this non-profit that does so much for women and girls.
Thank you for helping to empower my climb, the fourth of my seven summits, to make a difference in the lives of women and their families in support of GLAM4GOOD! Donate today on the link in the bio above!”

I’ve met some very inspiring (and bad ass) people in my lifetime.

At my SKYSCRAPER Hong Kong premiere, I met Dwayne Fernandes.
Born with a severe bone defect, at 11yrs old Dwayne made the heart breaking and courageous choice to have both his legs replaced with prosthetic limbs.
He made a choice that not having his legs wasn’t going to be his “excuse” for not doing things, but rather his “reason” for doing things.
And he did just that.
He’s a multiple world record holder, having competed in 8 international stair climb marathons. He captured the world’s attention in 2008 with his first international vertical marathon, completing the 1,504 stair Sydney Tower climb in 23.49 minutes.
This win set the FIRST WORLD RECORD FOR AMPUTEES.
A real honor meeting this man and certainly an honor to portray an amputee in my film.
Playing the character gave me a very VERY small glimpse into the daily struggles, heartbreak and above all else, the COURAGE these men, women & kids go thru on a daily basis.
Thank you brother for inspiring all of us and glad you loved the movie.
Ps, you’re the much cooler and way more bad ass, Dwayne. 👊🏾 #SKYSCRAPER #GlobalPressTour #DwayneFernandes #NoExcuses
