Kelly was just 15 years old when her leg was amputated after she’d been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called synovial sarcoma.

‘I remember telling the doctors I’d rather die than have my leg amputated,’ she previously told Daily Mail Australia.

But after researching the survival rates without amputation, Kelly made the tough decision to have her leg removed.

‘I remember meeting other amputees afterwards, which was hugely helpful – as was the rehabilitation,’ she said.

‘Speaking to other people and working with my mentor was also invaluable – it helped me to go back to sport.’

After having her right leg amputated, Kelly went on to win two Paralympic medals, climb Mount Kilimanjaro and appear on Dancing with the Stars.
