Today's collaboration with Cellar Image of the Day brings us this amazing story of Qian Hongyan:
The Chinese youngster's family was too poor to afford the sophisticated medical assistance that could have helped her to walk again when she lost her legs in a horrific accident in 2000 when she was just three years old.
But in an inspired move Qian's parents came up with the idea of sitting her on a basketball, which, with the aid of a couple of brushes that double as low-level crutches, enabled her to move herself by bouncing around.
She became highly mobile on her unconventional transporter and was able to travel independently between her home and the local school.
After years propelling herself along the ground, the youngster has been given the chance to walk again after she was taken under the wing of doctors who have fitted her with prosthetic legs.
