I don't know how many of you have heard the story about this little girl.  Her name is Yok Shan.  She was born in Malaysia in 2007.  Due to medical malpractice, she had to have her left arm amputated at the elbow at only 5 weeks old.  There are pictures online of her poor little arm before it was amputated. It was gangrenous. It is so awful to see something like that on such a small baby. I am not going to post them on here though.

She is an amazing little girl and she is now my friend.  :)  


Here is a link to her story, just be aware that the pictures are very graphic:

Poor little girl, that's so sad and so tragic, she sounds like one brave and strong child.

I just went on her page and told her how beautiful and strong she is and that she and her family are an inspiration.  

I hope they know how to use Google translate.  :)
