Christina Stephens really puts the leg in Lego. Last year, her foot was amputated after it was crushed under a car she was rebuilding. Stephens took it in stride by fashioning a prosthesis out of some old Lego blocks she had lying around her basement. Stephens, an occupational therapist and clinical researcher, said she decided to build the toy leg after a co-worker jokingly proposed the idea. While others would have laughed off the suggestion, Stephens said, "Challenge accepted." "I liked the idea, because I am very comfortable with my body and like encouraging others to be more comfortable with theirs," she said.
