The pain of losing any part of your body is totally unimaginable until and unless one faces that pain. But there are many who even after such a big loss finds their life worth worthy and lead an ideal lifestyle.
A 20-year-old Vicky Balch, who is a former dancer, from Leyland, Lancashire lost her leg in the Alton Towers roller coaster crash in June.
She wore a leg support while she took part in the catwalk for models of the Diversity fashion show.
She walked with so much confidence and happiness that her face was automatically glowing. Her black strapless evening dress was completely suiting her.

Balch shared the moment when her ride collided with an empty carriage. She described the time after her operation in which her right leg was removed above the knee. It was the life ending moment for her.
The television presenter Gail Porter also participated in the fashion show, which was promoting the greater diversity.
While she admitted, the surgeon noticed that the infection went through her bone, meaning her leg had to be amputated. But slowly and eventually she started recovering at Specialist Mobility Rehabilitation Centre in Preston since the operation. Now, finally she has progressed from a wheelchair to crutches and has been provided with a prosthetic leg.
