Pioneering Surgery Repairs Girl’s Spine With Leg Bone -Science Not Superstition
Her dad Scott said: “Before she was basically a timebomb - we never knew how long it would take to go off, we never knew how long we actually had with her.
“Since having the op she’s now had her life expectancy increased to that of a normal child.”
Since the surgery there have been early signs of sensation returning to her legs, which means it may be possible for Rosie to one day walk with prosthetic legs.
Her mum Mandy said: “Rosie is such a strong character. You give her the equipment to use and she’ll do it, whether it’s sticks or artificial legs or her hands - she’ll make a way of walking.
