Medical marvel Josie appeals for donations

Positive Bones project will help support others

A woman who defied medical expectation is now appealing for help to turn her life around.

At the age of 17, Josie Bridges was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and given just one year to live.

She also had metal plates put in from her ankle to her upper thigh, and 11 years later she's now preparing to have that leg amputated.

Josie has set up the Positive Bones project, where she aims to raise money to buy herself the ideal prosthetic limb - as well as be a source of support for others.
