Ballerinas Leg Amputation

A teenage ballerina chose to have her leg AMPUTATED after a huge benign tumour left her with an ‘elephant foot’ and unable to dance. Pretty Chanel Carter, 15, was left devastated when she developed a rare bone condition that left her with a tumour on her right leg – crushing her dreams of becoming a dancer and choreographer. Doctors managed to remove the benign tumour – which left Chanel with what she describes an ‘elephant foot’ – but within weeks, it had grown back.
