I’m Janette (a.k.a. Stump Girl) and I created this blog to share my stories, experiences, and inspiration and to be an online community for those seeking to live healthy, happy lives no matter their circumstances!

Janette is an artist, athlete, wife, and mother. After years of complications, her right leg was amputated in 2012. She seeks to live an active and full life and to inspire others to do the same.

Why I Created StumpGirl.com

I created Stump girl because since losing my leg I have come to realize that the perception of people is far different than actually living life as an amputee.

I have run into problems such as these and insurance just doesn’t cover many obstacles that we encounter and this leads to inactivity and depression many times.
My goal is to give people someone to talk to that has experienced trials they are possibly facing and hopefully get proper advice to help them out.
