When this girl turned nine, her mother decided to amputate her legs. What happened 15 years later, no one would have thought possible.
Oksana Bondarchuk was born in June 1989 in the Ukrainian city of Khmelnytskyi. But when she emerged into the world, doctors got a shock. They looked at the newborn baby and saw that a large part of her legs were missing. Her hands were misshapen, she had no thumbs or fingernails, and she suffered from damage to her kidneys.
