Five years ago, Janis Ollson was literally cut in half to remove an untreatable cancerous tumour.
Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., removed her leg, lower spine and half her pelvis in the lifesaving surgery.
Ollson became the first person to receive a “pogo stick” rebuild, with her one remaining leg fused to her body with the reshaped bone from the amputated leg.
Read the complete story and be inspired by her strength and courage. She will be an amazing teacher!
