The Little Girl With No Legs And Big Dreams | Born Different

A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD double amputee is showing that her differences won't hold her back. Daisy-May Demetre, from Birmingham, UK was born with a condition called fibular hemimelia, a birth defect where part or all of the fibular bone in the leg is missing. In Daisy’s case she had one tiny fibular bone in one leg and on the other side it was completely missing. With Daisy's balance and mobility affected, Alex and Claire (Daisy’s mum) decided the best option was for their daughter to have below the knee amputations on both legs. After her operation, Daisy was fitted with prosthetic legs, and learnt to walk, run, jump - and more in them. Alex set up an Instagram account for Daisy, and following the attention she received they applied to Zebedee Management, a modelling agency for diverse models.
