GEORGE F. LEE / GLEE@STARADVERTISER.COM Dr. Arabella Leet, a surgeon at Shriners Hospital, calls 6-year-old Darshani Sami’s progress “a remarkable present for us all." Darshani can run and walk now that surgery has made it possible for her to use a prosthetic leg.
COURTESY SHRINER'S HOSPITAL Darshani was born with her right leg much shorter than the left, with only three toes. Surgery straightened her shinbone so that she could be fitted with a prosthetic leg.
