Josh Sundquist

Josh Sundquist is a Paralympian, motivational speaker, and Halloween enthusiast.

Here are some other things about him:

Motivational Speaker
Josh Sundquist is a bestselling author, motivational speaker, and Paralympic ski racer. He has spoken across the world to groups ranging from Fortune 500 companies to inner city public schools to the White House.

Cancer Survivor
Josh's journey began at age nine, when he was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and given a fifty percent chance to live. He spent a year on chemotherapy treatments and his left leg was amputated. Doctors declared Josh cured of the disease at age thirteen and he took up ski racing three years later.

Paralympic Athlete
He trained for the next six years and in 2006 he was named to the US Paralympic Ski Team for the 2006 Paralympics in Turino, Italy. A multi-season athlete, Josh is the only person in history to ever have been named to both the US Paralympic Ski Team and the US Amputee Soccer Team.

Bestselling Author
Josh's memoir, Just Don't Fall, was a National Bestseller in hardcover and is now available in paperback and audiobook. It has been translated into German for a European edition and is also on shelves down under in an Australia/New Zealand edition, for which, as it turns out, no translation was required.

YouTube personality
Best known for his viral hit "The Amputee Rap," Josh has built a YouTube channel with over ten million views and one-hundred-thousand subscribers. In 2010 he was a winner of both the YouTube NextUp and YouTube On The Rise contests.

Doer of Good
Josh served a two-year tenure as the National Spokesperson for the Combined Federal Campaign, an effort that raises over $300 million dollars a year for charities. He has been featured on the back of Doritos bags nationwide for being the founder of LessThanFour.org. For the record, Josh would've preferred to name it GiveMeAHand.com, but that URL was already taken.

Media Attention Receiver
Josh has been featured on CNN, USA TODAY, and NPR, and in many other less-famous and important sounding media outlets.

Education
Josh received a degree in business from the College of William and Mary and a Master's in Communications from the University of Southern California. He lives in Washington, DC.
