I'm possible

For most people, climbing Africa's tallest mountain is an impossible achievement. But how about doing it without legs? For Spencer West, nothing is impossible. Or as he would put it: everything is possible. Nearly all of the 31-year-old American's life has proven the doctors wrong. When they amputated both of his legs right below the pelvis when he was 5, they warned that he would never be a functioning member of society. But West has led not only led a life that is remarkably normal compared to his doctors' prognosis – he has accomplished feats that, by any measure, are extraordinary.

Impossible.   I'm possible.   Bravo, Mr. West!
