A man named 陈州 – Chen Zhou from Shang Dong, China, lost both his legs at the age of 13.  He relies on his arm and a pair of self-made wooden crate to replace his lost limb.  He braved the northern peak of Xi Yue Hua moutain (西岳华山) and finally fulfills his dream of conquering the 5 famous mountains (Wu Yue San-五岳山) in China.

This iron man, whose parents were separated when he was a juvenile and he got the keys of the street eventually.  At 13, he was run over by a train and lost both his legs.  His grandpa brought him up and survive as a street artist and became a singer performer.  The idea ignites him when he was about to tie the knot with a lady.  He faced difficulties to find money to hold a wedding ceremony.  He was so troubled and depressed over his incapability.

Hence, he vowed to climb the 5 famous mountains of China (Wu Yue San-五岳山) to present his wife to-be the most sincere wedding gift of all.  With no doubts, he made it by using his bare arms through his unyielding will power!  And who won’t be touched by this utmost power of love!
