A Missing Leg Doesn’t Slow Down a Great Athlete:

Willie Buchanan of Shelbyville, Tennessee was a star basketball player coming out of high school in the late 1960’s. Standing tall at 6’5”, Buchanan had opportunities to play college ball. But, when he decided to go see the doctor about a painful bump in his knee, the diagnosis was grim. He was told he had bone cancer and the leg need to be amputated. The news was difficult and life changing, but Willie grabbed life by the horns and pursued his dream anyway. That’s not the only dream he would chase.
