A girl who beat bone cancer and had surgery to reattach her foot backwards is more active than ever before.

Amelia Eldred, nine, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma – the most common type of bone cancer – in August 2017.

Doctors amputated her knee and part of her leg, then re-attached her foot and heel joints back-to-front to create a new knee.

The life-changing procedure, called a rotationplasty, allowed Amelia to slip her foot into a more functional prosthetic leg.

But since having her operation, Amelia, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, has taken up dancing, roller-skating, trampolining and football.

Amelia, whose bone cancer has gone into remission, also now rides donkeys, walks across ropes high in the air and enjoys lengthy bike rides.

Her mother, Michelle, 46, a civil servant, said: ‘Amelia is a really amazing little girl, you would never have thought she had been through what she has done.

‘She shows her leg off with pride, and never batted an eye at having to have the procedure done in the first place.

‘We told her that rotationplasty was an option and Amelia made her decision after watching a girl on YouTube who had the same operation and is now a dancer.

‘Amelia said she wanted to be like her. As she went into surgery, the last thing she said was “bye bye tumour, see you loser!”

Ms Eldred went on to say that Amelia now feels that her new leg is her ‘superpower’.

‘She is proud of her leg and proud to show it and explain what she has had done,’ she said.

‘She will challenge any unkind words as she feels it is her superpower.

‘She was always such an active girl, she loves everything outdoors, she loves dance, athletics, sports and playing outside.’

Ms Eldred went on to explain that despite the rotationplasty being ‘controversial’, her family knew it was the best thing for her.

‘It’s quite a controversial procedure that she had, you definitely double take at it if you have never seen it before because her foot is backwards,’ she said.

‘As a family, we knew that she had a much higher chance of a long and fulfilling life if the procedure went well.

‘Because it went really well, she can do everything she loves, and now it’s even better because each activity is a new challenge for her.

‘One thing we know for sure is that she’s too driven to let her prosthetic get in the way of everything she likes doing, and she proves it to us every single day.’
