How neat that this little girl gets a doll that looks just like her…
“Two-year-old Violet was born with fibular hemimelia, which means she is missing her fibula, the calf bone. In September 2015 she had a Syme amputation, just above the ankle.
To create a doll that looks just like little Violet, the Shriners Hospital orthotic and prosthetic department “operated” on an American Girl doll and created prosthetic legs to match the ones Violet has.”
