“One day, someone said, ‘Richard, I want to thank you for giving up your legs so we could have a better quality of life,’ ” St. Denis said. “I didn’t intentionally give up my legs, but I feel like I gave up something to help other people. I know people’s lives are getting better in Mexico. I feel really great to be part of that.”
