Hello. My name is Zsolt Keresztes.
Back in October 2016,  I have been diagnosed with cancer, Ewing sarcoma in my left lower leg. After 6 cycles of chemotherapy the only chance to save my life, it was the above knee amputation.
Before I used to be a very active person; gym, dog walking, bike riding, hiking and the running was on my activity list.
The most important thing what I realised in the last half-year that I don't have to be afraid to do what I want to do, and I don't have to let what happened to me stop me doing it. I just learned to get up, keep going and carry on.
We live once, and the life is valuable.
Since my amputation, I have had to learn even to walk again. Doing my daily tasks (climbing stairs, cooking, shopping etc.) is a big challenge. The life on crutches is not for me, I want to be more active.
I never thought that I can fall in love with a "piece of metal" :), but after discovering the Genium X3 it was easy. This prosthetic knee would be the solution for me to get back to the normal life.
But this fabulous Ottobock Genium X3 itself costs £38,000 with the socket/ankle joint/foot/labour-cost making up the remainder of the cost.
If I manage to get this leg, it will change my life more than most people could ever imagine. I can be active again as before. I can climb the mountains of Transylvania and finally, I can learn to swim. I have a lot to plan for my future, to live a better and meaningful life.  But I believe that everything is achievable and we have to dream big to accomplish something special. 

You can help me to change my life.

Thank you :) 

 Update #1:

In 1 year time, we have reached unbelievable goals and targets.  Approximately 80% of the cost of Genium X3 is now collected from you guys! Can you imagine how amazing is this? Thank you!!! 

Last year, we have found an association, called "One and a half leg". I have big dreams with this association. I'd like to help to other amputees, other cancer-passions.  Just because I realized how important is the common work and the common support. 

The Genium X3 prosthetic will be my biggest support to reach my goals. With this new robot-leg, I can live a life without limitation and I can help my fellows to reach the goals and not to give up in the challenging time.
