Limbless Boy with Special Skills

Take a look at the boy in the picture above. This is 12 year old Nick Santonastasso. He was born without legs and with only one arm and one finger. But just like other kids of his age, Nick can play the drums and the piano. Sounds strange? But this is the truth. Nick is special. He has also mastered two types of skateboards and is learning how to swim.

"I'm capable of what everyone else is," Nick told

Nick was born with oromandibular limb hypogenesis syndrome or Hanhart syndrome type II. But nick is special. He proved that you can do anything, if you have the determination and proper inspiration. Nick also makes art and in April, he won a New Jersey art contest for a poster he drew. Link
