The operation Gabi got involved removing her knee, rotating her foot 180 degrees, and then reattaching it to her upper leg, with her ankle serving as her knee.

Six years on, Gabi has made a full recovery from cancer, and has become accustomed to her new life as an amputee. 

 

This 15-year-old warrior has also defied the odds, and become a successful ballerina!
