TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - For some, being born a double arm amputee might be considered an obstacle, but not for Stephen Hann. Today (Saturday September 29) at 1 pm in Prince Ballroom South of the Westin Prince Hotel (900 York Mills Road), Stephen will tell his success story to multiple amputee children - or "Super Champs" - attending The War Amps 2012 Multiple Amputation Seminar.
Stephen was enrolled in CHAMP and attended many seminars, later giving back as a Junior Counsellor. In today's session, he will describe with candour and humour how he overcame his amputations and explain to young Super Champs that with the help of family, friends and CHAMP, they can too! Stephen currently works as a retirement specialist in Prince Edward Island.
Media are also welcome to attend the following sessions today, or interviews with the "Super Champs" can be arranged at any time:
