Finding new life with a new leg - LIVE on CBC by Christa Couture published on 2017-12-19T22:33:30Z "At thirteen years old, singer-songwriter Christa Couture lost her left leg to bone cancer. After months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, an above-the-knee amputation was only cure; she was lucky to have it. But life with a prosthetic leg was far from easy. All of the things non-amputees take for granted - walking up and down stairs, finding balance, even dancing - took strength and perseverance, something Christa has in spades. In this moving story, Christa recounts a particularly awkward junior high dance... one that was so traumatizing that it kept her off of the dance floor for decades. Find out how a brand new microprocessor knee - and a prosthetic covered in an amazing floral fabric - changed everything." - CBC's DNTO Told in front of a live audience at the York Theatre in Vancouver, B.C., April 2015.
