Today’s conversation is with the ever positive Ellie Cole. Ellie has become one of Australia’s most accomplished Paralympians with 15 olympic medals and a world record.
At age three, Ellie’s right leg was amputated after she suffered a life-threatening sarcoma cancer.
When Ellie started swimming as a form of rehab post-surgery, doctors expected it to take at least a year to learn how to swim.
It took her two weeks.
Ellie shares stories about the power of gaining perspective, the essential role of gratitude, and the importance of normalising what we might see as a disability - but is really just her story.
It’s not only Ellie’s courageous story but her unrivalled sense of humour, wonderful humility and never-say-die attitude that make her a true Australian inspiration.
This is a conversation for the whole family to enjoy with the bubbly Ellie Cole.
