Grand Rapids Amputee Set To Bike Across The Country
I recently met a man named Spencer who has battled cancer and won! Spencer is doing something unbelievable though and I had to share his story! In Spencer’s battle with cancer, he lost his leg, he is now set to bike ride with a bike you pedal by hand, across the country! Check Spencer’s whole story in his words here.
My name is Spencer Brandt and I am a twenty one year old cancer survivor. In honor of my tenth year in remission, I am planning a trip to try and give back to those that helped me along my battle.
Next year I will be biking using a hand-cycle, which as the name implies is a bike I peddle and steer using my hands, from the coast of Maine to the coast of California. Along the way I will film my entire trip and interview a series of cancer survivors, military personal, or anyone else that has had a life altering event that they have over come, and find out what made them strong enough to endure it. When I finish my trip, I’ll take all the footage and turn it into a documentary, is the hopes that who ever watches it, will find inner strength, ,a drive to go on, and to do better.
With your help, together, maybe we can change the world.
