Fundraiser for Anna Saphia, a girl who had to have her leg amputated - how you can help

A 6-year-old Tampa girl is starting first grade this week with a new challenge. Anna Saphia had her leg amputated as the result of a genetic disorder.

This weekend, her friends are throwing her a fundraiser to help with some medical costs. 

She had her leg amputated at the hip after a genetic disorder was finally diagnosed. Anna's body doesn't fight tumors which made her leg grow to almost 20 pounds - she was almost immobile and had to spend most of her time in a wheelchair.

Anna wants a prosthetic. For more information on how to help, click here:
