Famous Amigo Owner - Totie Fields

Totie Fields (May 7, 1930 – August 2, 1978) was an American comedienne who was popular in the 1960s and 70s. 

She received her first big break from Ed Sullivan when he saw her perform in New York and booked her to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show. She appeared in many popular shows throughout the 60s and 70s.

Fields began using an Amigo scooter in 1976 after a failed surgery to remove a blood clot led to amputation.

In her first onscreen appearance after her amputation, she memorably exclaimed, "I've waited all my life to say this... I weigh less than Elizabeth Taylor!"
