Heather Mills

25 Aug, 2014

Heather Mills is an English activist, model, and entrepreneur born in 1968 in Aldershot, Hampshire, England. InĀ 1993, she was involved in a traffic accident that caused her left leg to be amputated beneath the knee. Mills kept modeling with a prosthetic leg and began the Heather Mills Health Trust. The trust was designed to recycle prosthetic limbs to those who couldn’t afford a new limb. Mills also serves as vice-president of the Limbless Association and won several gold medals in the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games. In 2002, she married musician Paul McCartney. The couple had one child and divorced in 2008.
