This Hilarious Instagram Account Follows An Amputated Foot's Adventures Around America
When Kristi Loyall lost her leg in a battle with cancer, she asked to keep it for a hilarious reason....
We see some pretty wacky adventure Instagram accounts here at Mpora HQ, but this profile has to be the funniest and most life affirming account we've ever come across - And the profile's owner is an amputated foot.
When Kristi Loyall had to have her foot amputated, she decided she didnt want to say goodbye to the limb quite yet. She asked the doctors to clean it up and took it home.
What she decided to do, was set the foot up with its own Instagram profile. OneFootWander shares photos of the skeletal adventurer's new life away from Kristi and has over 5,000 followers and counting.
Kristi first went to the doctor back in 2011 when she noticed a strange numbness in her little toe. Without a definite diagnosis the numbness slowly turned into a sharp pain down one side of her foot, gradually getting worse up till 2014.
While originally the doctors suspected that the pain was down to epithelial sarcoma, Loyall noticed a lump on the inside of her right foot which didn't fit that diagnosis.
After months of doctor’s appointments, scans and tests, she was finally diagnosed with cancer in 2015 and the doctors decided to amputate entirely, to ensure that the Cancer couldn't spread.
"We love Kristi’s hilarious and sense of humour, as well as her ‘f*ck you’ attitude to cancer"
Now the amputated limb is footloose and fancy free, frequently uploading photos of its travels across the US on Instagram.
We love Kristi's hilarious and sense of humour, as well as her 'f*ck you' attitude to cancer and whatever life throws at her.
While many of us could get dragged down by losing a limb, we should look to be more like Kristi and learn to take the rough with the smooth, all while keeping a great sense of humour.
They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. It seems like when life takes your foot, make a hilariously successful Instagram.
