Marc Dunshee shattered his left leg riding a dirt bike, an injury he was never able to fully recover from. He spent 10 years in pain, in and out of doctors’ offices, before he took what some would call a drastic action to end that pain.
He asked doctors to cut off his leg. He had to ask several times before doctors said yes, and scheduled a surgery.
And while that could have been the biggest life-changing moment in Dunshee’s life, there was another one yet to come. He applied for a job at a business that made prosthetics, wanting to learn how to make his own leg.
