I have been reading this week's That's Life! - I read a very touching story from a very brave young lady named Tara Panayis. Tara suffered from psuedoarthrosis - psuedoarthrosis is a rare condition where the tibia bone bends to create a false joint. Rather than endure years of pain, Tara decided she would rather have her lower leg amputated and wear a prosthetic leg.
