"Me being disabled is an opportunity to make the world a better place.”

By Peter Knighton

At nine months old I was diagnosed with a very rare and often terminal form of cancer. I started chemotherapy when I was 10 months old. I spent two years in chemotherapy. As a result of the chemotherapy I have brain damage frontal lobe damage and ataxia cerebral palsy. I've also suffered from epilepsy, asthma and osteoporosis.

I've split my head open from my left forehead to the corner of my right eye, fallen through a glass door, been hit by three cars, been shot, had my chest ripped open by a dog, been in a van crash and in a house fire.

Although I have a number of disabilities I have never let them stop me from enjoying life. I have proved many medical experts wrong in my lifetime and every day that I wake up I prove them wrong. Me being disabled is an opportunity to make the world a better place.
