Amputee says goodbye to his foot in heartwarming photo diary

His positivity is infectious.

THIS JUST GOES to show that a positive outlook can brighten even the worst situations.

According to the Metro, Joe Pleban (23), from Fredericksburg in the US, has a rare bone and joint disease that causes tumours in his ankle.

He decided to have his left foot amputated after doctors told him it would allow him to continue playing extreme sports.

The month before his surgery, Joe’s sister started a Facebook page called The Last Adventures of Joe’s Left Foot to keep friends and family updated about his condition – and how he was making the best of things before he went under the knife.

He got a tattoo on his left ankle that read ‘Please Cut Here’:
