DRS Designs has some lovely new stamps highlighting the strength of people facing challenges like this great crutch assisted guy.
I have a friend who was in an accident in his early 20s and lost most the use of his legs. I colored up my guy to resemble him. He owns a landscape business, coaches baseball, recently won an election to county commissioner and never lets anything stop him. He is such an inspiration to me.
Here he is on vacation in the city - actually he would probably not want to go to the city as he is a county boy through and through. I probably should have done a tractor instead.

I love this card Nancy! What a great way to celebrate someone you know who is a huge inspiration in spite of personal challenges. I particularly like how you framed the image out with the dark frame. ~Karen.
