The smiling crippled girl

Qian HongYan lost her legs in an accident

Her family in China are poor and couldn't afford prosthetic legs, so she uses a basketball to help her move.

Qian uses two wooden props to drag herself, and never complains, even though she has worn through six basketballs.


She attends her class


She always smiles

She Is Always cheerful

She is always positive


With help from kind souls she is now able to afford a pair of prosthetic legs.

Smile always
Be grateful with what you have.


  1. She is amazing and we have to learn from her really.The art of smiling in spite of so much in life.

  2. Hi nitrile exam gloves,

    She is incredibly amazing and inspiring indeed. It is just so easy, quick and automatic for us to tear, weep, cry and sob when faced with lives' down moments. We all have to learn to cast our eyes at the golden linings of each and every dark clouds in our lives and by doing so, life will be a lot easier for us to live on.

  3. That is very true...I too have a lot of lows and tragedies in life...but none greater than her,so I did learn my lesson.Thanks to you for the post.

  4. Hi nitrile exam gloves,

    One mountain is higher than another. When you think your problems are unsurpassable, think twice. Some where out there, many other people's problems are worse than yours.

    Always be thankful for what you have and not yearn for what you are lacking. Thank you so much for your valuable sharing and comments. I am uplifted by it.
