Hannah Taylor is a strong, young woman who had to overcome osteosarcoma (bone cancer) as a child. For her treatment, the tumor in her femur had to be resected. Therefore, part of her femur had to be replaced with a prosthesis when the tumor was surgically removed. For almost ten years, Hannah was able to walk without any problems. About five months before we met Hannah in September 2015, she began having excruciating pain in her leg and was having a hard time walking. She started to require crutches to walk. After getting misdiagnosed multiple times, Hannah finally found out that her prosthesis had broken inside of her leg. She required surgery immediately but didn’t have the funds to pay for this surgery. We were so happy that we were able to help Hannah through this hard time. We recently heard from Hannah in December and we are happy to say that she is recovering well! She still has some more progress to make but she is very happy with the outcome of her surgery.
