Nine year old choses amputation over wheelchair
At a time when the pressing choice most children have to make is whether or not they want the crust left on their sandwich, nine-year-old Nick Nelson was faced a decision that would affect the rest of his life.
Born with a rare birth defect called , Nick was unable to straighten out his legs and with one getting progressively worse, he was given two options: amputate his right leg or to use a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
Showing a wisdom far beyond his years the youngster said, "Sometimes, you just have to make hard choices in your life, and that's one of them."
Nick opted for amputation and has been fitted for a prosthetic leg. In about three weeks, I imagine this amazing kid will probably be running half-marathons.
