Welcome

I am Cameron Clapp, a teenage triple amputee. On September 15, 2001, 4 days after the tragedy of 9/11, my 15 year old life changed forever as I experienced a tragedy of my own. I was hit by a train, resulting in the loss of three limbs—one arm and both legs above the knee. Remarkably, my head and body escaped the accident with hardly a scratch. For that I am very grateful.

With this web site, I wish to share my unique experiences with others, to hopefully inspire them to pursue and achieve their own goals regardless of the challenges they may face, and to provide useful information and resources for those having to deal with a loss of limb themselves.

My journey has been quite a challenge, yet remarkable. I found I possessed a determination that I never realized I had before that fateful day. I found myself determined to make the most of my life despite the obvious challenges.


My family

Although my determination and positive attitude have helped me make substantial progress, this progress is largely a result of the love and support my family and friends have given so freely, and to the immeasurable inspiration I've received from my new friends—other amputees.


My friends

In the two short years since my accident, I have not only learned to walk again, but have become very involved in disabled sports. I am now running, swimming and even started playing golf. I have been interviewed as the "Remarkable Runner" by CNN Headline News. I have competed in running and swimming events at two annual Endeavor Games sponsored by Hanger. And as this web site is launched, I attended my first golf tournament! That turned out to be my greatest challenge so far.

When I'm not training or competing in disabled sports, I spend time pursuing my love for art and music and enjoying my family and friends.


Endeavor Games, 2003

Please browse my web site to learn more about me and the challenges I've faced and events I've participated in, and also to discover the useful resources for dealing with a loss of limb that have helped me.

"I'm thankful I'm here today, alive and participating in disabled athletic events. It's a way of showing America, and just people in general, how much you can do."
—Cameron Clapp at the Casco Bay Challenge, August 2003


San Diego Triathalon, 2003

"You know, good things come from tragic situations. I have met so many incredible people and have participated in athletic events that I didn't even know existed before my accident. It is very hard to go through life missing three limbs, very hard, but it gets a little easier everyday. I would never give up, that's just not me."
—Cameron Clapp at the Oklahoma Amputee Golf Tournament, September 2003
