Jess Quinn was a normal nine year old that had lots of friends.
She loved sports and she ran, danced and swam.
One day she was trying to see how long she could stand on a soccer ball for and she fell off. She heard a snap and her sister went and told her parents.
She was rushed to hospital in an ambulance.
Jess was operated on straight away and the doctors found a cancer tumor growing on it weakening the bone. She was very sick and couldn't keep any food down. The only way to keep her alive was to amputate her leg from the knee down.
Jess was kept in hospital and she ended up shaving her head because more and more hair was falling off every day.
