Christina Stephen is an amputee.  She lost the lower part of her left leg earlier this year, but she has not let that diminish her sense of humor.

According to her Facebook page, "Christina is practicing occupational therapist, clinical researcher, and peer educator chronicling her journey from foot crush injury to amputation and beyond."

On her YouTube channel, Christina said her page is a resource for other amputees.

A little over a month ago, Christina uploaded a video to her YouTube channel. "Someone in my research lab jokingly suggested I make a prosthetic leg out of Lego's," she said.

That night, Christina went home and built a leg out of Legos. The video has been viewed almost a million times.

We have put together a slideshow showing Christina building her Lego leg.
