Dancer Gabi Schull was diagnosed with #cancer when she was nine. The disease severely affected one of her legs and, as a result, it had to be amputated. Fortunately, Gabi could have a rotationplasty, which allowed her ankle to act as her knee joint. As a result, she could walk again.
Yet Gabi wouldn't settle for simply putting one foot in front of the other. She wanted to #dance.
49When I first knew I was going to get my leg amputatedSo, she had a #prosthetic leg made, and eventually got back on the dance floor:
Later, at the age of 14, Gabi had a prosthetic made specifically for #en-pointe #ballet:
As Gabi continues to grow, her doctor will adjust her prosthetics. That way, she'll never have to stop dancing and #inspiring others.
Gabi has made it a personal mission to inspire others, and now fundraises for children with cancer.
We're cheering you on, Gabi!
