In West Philadelphia born and raised. I am the youngest of six children to dedicated, hardworking parents, and I have one amazing teenage daughter of my own. I’m also a bilateral, below-knee amputee. Hard work and faith have led me to become a world champion motorcycle racer, inspirational speaker, accomplished pilot, certified snowboard instructor, and volunteer at community events year-round. The way I see it, every day is a new opportunity to change your story. Learn from your experiences and start a new chapter. With this mindset, I work as an amputee advocate and certified peer visitor.

My vision is to travel the world, meet people living with disabilities or challenges, and share their stories. We can all learn from one another.

I recently found some old VHS tapes which brought back some great memories as well as life lessons. After being electrocuted and my subsequent leg amputations, I remember my father telling me that as long as I believed in myself, I could accomplish great things in life. I chose to believe that prosthetic legs can kick ass! Greatness dwells within each & every one of us! #IGiveGodTheGlory #AmputeeDragRacer #ProstheticDesign #StarRacing College Park Industries ...

The Angel City Games presented by The Hartford gives people who live with a disability a place where they can compete against each other in a variety of different athletic competitions. Being able to network with and be inspired by other people who have gone through a similar life challenge is a very therapeutic component of the rehabilitation process. I attended this year’s event as a proud volunteer! College Park Industries Angel City Sports ... See MoreSee Less

While visiting with prosthetist Greg Zschaschel from Dynamic Prosthetics, Tyler Hyatt and I were asked to pay a special hospital visit to new amputee Jeff Jeweler. Jeff was in a horrific car accident last week on the 101 Freeway in Sherman Oaks CA where he was ejected from his car and his leg was severed (it stayed inside the car). He found the strength to pull himself off of the highway and out of the flow of traffic. Other drivers stopped & helped stabilize him until rescue units arrived. Jeff is a fighter with an amazingly positive attitude and he will be walking again soon. This was a perfect opportunity for us to use our experience as amputees to help someone else in their time of need. College Park Industries, we do more than make great feet! 🙏🏽 ... See MoreSee Less

Human beings are curious by nature. We’re always going to stare at things that are unique & different. Bilateral below knee amputee swimmer Haven Shepherd gives some good advice on how to handle being stared at for being different!

So true. Thanks for sharing

Excellent advice as usual, Reggie. Haven seems awesome! (And Happy Father's Day, too!)

Awesome interview as always. The message and the lesson is even more awesome and powerful. Badass is an understatement! Boom!

Great interview Reggie Showers.best of luck raven shepherd 👍🏻good advice

So the contant is people staring. The variable is my reaction to that. When I was insecure and angry and drowning in self-pity, I hated it. When I'm connected and whole and healthy, I love it. For me, the solution has been self-care.

Love this. I treat every stare, every awkward question as a positive opportunity to engage in a conversation. Works every time. Keep up the great work Reggie and Haven 👍👍👍😊😊😊

Awesome advice. I am just used to not looking down at my legs. I walk about being as positive as I am able. If they say something to me, I'm very happy to talk to them about the legs. I've ridden across Iowa 8 times now. You really notice the effect me being on a 2 wheeler has on people. I've been told the legs look like pistons. You can feel the discomfort some have as they pass me. Others say things like "You're my hero." I've learned to smile and thank them. Others ride along with me and strike up a conversation. I spend 7 days talking to hundreds. This year I will be down on a handcycle. Not sure I'll be noticed as much. I enjoyed the postings from Edmond. I hope to be back with my Cajun Crushers next year.

Happy Father’s Day Bro
