Jorge Sanchez is a 29-year-old professional wheelchair basketball athlete for Team USA and a cancer survivor. He loves a challenge and is proud to be a 3-time 1st team All American, 3-time gold medalist, and silver medal World Champ. Additionally, Jorge is a 2021 Tokyo Paralympics hopeful, University of Texas alumn, and recent MBA graduate from Keller School of Business.
At the young age of 8, Jorge was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma in his left femur which left him with the tough decision to have his leg amputated above the knee. He overcame a total of 23 surgeries, a near-death experience, and 2 years of chemotherapy. Currently, he is training for a spot on the 2021 Tokyo Paralympic Basketball team while playing professionally in Gran Canaria.
