Josh Sundquist is the bestselling author of Just Don't Fall, a motivational speaker, and a Paralympic ski racer. He has spoken across the country to groups ranging from Fortune 500 companies to inner city public schools to the White House.

At age nine, Josh was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and given a 50 percent chance to live. He spent a year on chemotherapy treatments and his left leg was amputated. When Josh was 13, doctors declared him cured of the disease, and he took up ski racing three years later. In 2006, he was named to the U.S. Paralympic Ski Team for the 2006 Paralympics in Turino, Italy.

He also is the founder of LessThanFour.org, the world's largest social networking website for amputees. Josh has been featured on CNN, USA TODAY, and NPR.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
