triple amputee graduates from med school

As a child, Kellie Lim was afflicted by devastating bacterial infection that destroys limbs, leaving her a triple amputee at age 8, and facing a lifetime prosthetics, wheelchairs, rehabilitation, and generally difficult living. This week, she will graduate from UCLA's medical school: Dream defies loss of limbs. I'm normally not a big fan of "look-what-the-disabled-person-can-do" stories... but damn, give this woman some props. Her chosen specialty is pediatrics.
