Anything's possible for Turn It Around's Sean

Our Turn It Around case study, amputee Sean O'Connor, joins Lorraine on the sofa to talk about his progress and his recent visit to meet Paralympian and five-time medal winner, Stefanie Reid.

Sean got in touch with us earlier this year because he wanted help to overcome his long-term physical and emotional struggles after losing his leg in a serious car accident.

The last time we caught up with Sean, 53, he had received a new prosthetic leg and was about to embark on rehabilitation to get him moving again.

On today's show, Paralympic long-jumper Stefanie meets Sean to talk about her own incredible journey, the boating accident that resulted in the amputation of her right foot, and beating the odds to become a five-time world record holder.

She offers Sean advice on reaching his own goals at rehab and the motivation to cope with the next stage of his journey.

Her advice really sinks in with Sean, giving him an anything is possible attitude!
