Adopted through Holt from Thailand when she was nearly 6 years old, Kanya grew up in Oregon with her parents Jane and David Sesser. Although born without legs, Kanya has overcome her disability to become a champion in track and field – and wheelchair track in particular. Now 19, she ranks among the fastest U.S. woman in her class in the 100-meter.
Her next goal is to compete in the U.S. Paralympics Track and Field Trials in Indiana – the qualifying event for the U.S. Paralympic Team to compete in the 2012 Paralympic Games in London!
But she needs help getting there…
If you would like to help Kanya make the qualifying event for the 2012 Paralympic Games, please make checks out to “WASUSA” and send them to:
