Teen's Foot Replaced His Knee After Cancer Surgery

Cancer has met its match in 14-year-old Jacob Bredenhof! This kid is tough as nails. He's relearning to walk again after a surgery replaced his knee with his own foot.

Bredenhof was devastated when he learned he had two osteosarcomas growing on his femur bone. Doctors originally thought his pain was caused by sports injuries since the teen was very active, but scans revealed the cancerous tumors were putting pressure on his bones and could have caused them to snap.

Doctors gave Bredenhof the option of having his foot replace his knee. Though he has to relearn to walk, he will one day be able to run and jump and continue leading the active lifestyle that he loves!
