Since breaking multiple bones in both legs in the accident 13 years ago, 65-year-old Wizani hasn't been able to walk properly or carry out her daily life unassisted, due to chronic inflammation in her bones and joints that began two years later.As she prepared to go under the knife on March 5, Wizani prayed that God would give strength to the doctors and nurses who were inserting a 9-centimeter-long implant into her left leg. Once she has recovered from the first operation, doctors hope to insert the device into her right leg, too.
