This man is full of courage. I had the total honour of discovering Kris' story through a mutual friend and couldn't quite believe what this man has been through. Up until 2020 Kris had been doing life at a certain pace. In his own words, a corporate man, working hard and providing for his family. He'd been having ongoing issues with sciatica pain in his leg. Eventually Kris got a scan and the shocking news he wasn't expecting: a large tumour mass had grown in his upper leg and pelvic bone - the only way forwards was for his whole leg to be removed. Kris' surgery is known as a hemipelvectomy - it's rare and considered up there and one of the most traumatic surgeries to recover from. More commonly associated with military and mine survivors. Kris chats to me candidly about his initial reactions to the diagnosis and what his rehabilitation journey has looked like since.
If you've enjoyed any of these episodes or think a conversation on courage would help a friend, I'd appreciate a review. It takes less than 30 seconds and can really boost the chances of Call On Courage being discovered by others. Thanks so much 🙏🏻
