When Kristi Loyall found out that her right foot was going to be amputated, she jokingly asked whether she could keep it. Little did she know how far her little remark would go.
Loyall, from Oklahoma City, had to have her foot amputated to treat epithelioid sarcoma–a rare cancer that affects soft tissue–according to CTV News. When it was time to actually go through with the surgery, she realized that she actually did want to hold on to the foot. A month after the operation, she was handed it over.
“It was really peculiar. We went to pathology to pick it up and the first thing I did was move my toes,” she said. “My mom was really grossed out by that.”
Now, the story could’ve just ended here. However, Kristi wanted to add a bit more humour to the whole ordeal. And, so, she created an Instagram account about said foot to make people laugh.
This gives new meaning to “foot massage.”
Now that’s what we call art.
He can’t breathe!
Greatest. Foot. Selfie. Ever.
One of these things is not like the other 😉
Oh, you bet she works hard for her money.
Currently, OneFootWander has over 13,000 fans who follow her every move. Loyall’s put such a positive spin on something so tremendously draining and we’re glad that she’s sharing that with the world!
