​"No" is not a possiblity

Katy Sullivan was born a bilateral, transfemoral amputee – missing both legs through her femur bones. Ultra sounds were not the norm back in the 70’s when Katy was born, so the first indication that there was a problem was when Katy’s mom was in the hospital in the pains of labor.

Mrs. Sullivan was given anesthesia, but she knew something was amiss before she went under. When she awoke, looking at her husband, wanting to know what happened, she asked him to tell her the truth. He told her Katy was born without her lower legs. Incredulously, she stared at her husband and said, “That’s it?” And, that’s been Katy’s mantra ever since. The absence of her lower legs certainly hasn’t held her back.

In Katy's words, "No, is not a possibility."

Katy is a competitive runner that participates in events such as the Challenged Athletes Triathlon and the UCO Endeavor Games.
