Craig Foster’s journey is a testament to resilience in the face of adversity. As a left leg below the knee amputee forced into retirement by health issues in 2017, he knows firsthand the daunting challenges life can throw our way. In 2019, faced with the stark reality of amputation, Craig made the courageous decision to undergo surgery.

But Craig’s story doesn’t end with his surgery; it’s where his mission truly began. Stepping into a new role as an active member and counselor with the Amputee Coalition of Arkansas, Craig found purpose in helping others navigate the complexities of limb loss.

For Craig, there’s no greater satisfaction than guiding and mentoring fellow amputees through their own journeys.

In his candid reflections, Craig offers invaluable insights into dealing with the inevitable bad days. By normalizing the ups and downs of life, he encourages us all to embrace the full spectrum of our experiences. Looking ahead, Craig’s determination to make a lasting impact on the amputee community burns brighter than ever.
