Doctors can’t really explain why jessica Cox was born with no hands. None of the prenatal tests her mother took showed there was anything wrong with her. And yet she was born with this rare congenital disease, but also with a great spirit.
Jessica started using her legs for things most of us can only do with our hands, from a very young age. She learned how to eat, how to write and throughout her childhood she got involved in activities like dancing, swimming and gymnastics. She took up tae-kwan-do at the age of 10 and she got her black belt at 14. She has a no-restrictions driving license, she flies planes and she can type 25 words a minute.
Jessica Cox is certainly not to be pitied, if something she should be envyed because she has done some things many of us will probably never do, and she did it with no hands.
