Found this girl referenced in the newspapers in an article today about the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con International.

From It's good to be a geek at Comic-Con

Henderson the show stopper

Lacey Henderson lost her right leg below the knee to cancer when she was 10.

But it's hardly slowed her down. She rock climbs, snowboards and was the captain of her varsity cheerleading squad at Regis Jesuit High School in Denver.

"I can still do back flips," the 18-year-old said.

On Thursday, she became a show-stopper, playing the role of Cherry Darling, the hero from this year's Grindhouse. In the campy Quentin Tarantino film, Darling loses her right leg beneath the knee and replaces it with an M-4 machine gun.

Henderson landed the role after putting up her profile on a website dedicated to amputee roles in Hollywood (amputeeresource.org).

"I like the idea of letting people know you don't have to let a disability limit what you can do," she said during a break from the Weinstein Co. booth, where she posed for pictures in promotion of the DVD.

She was, however, a little overwhelmed by the Comic-Con audience.

"They were really sweet, but there are so many of them," said Henderson, whose cancer has been in remission for eight years. "And I got a few weird questions."

The weirdest?

"One guy asked me if I had my leg amputated to get the job."




I think she rocks! Considering what she's had to deal with at such a young age, she's managed to do more than simply adapt to life, but to shine. And she's fearless. She doesn't refer to her self as "disabled", but rather "differently-abled.'
