In the Feb, 5, 2013 photo, Arli Mujica uses crutches as she walks down the catwalk during the Bionic Fashion show at the Metropolitan Cultural Center in Quito, Ecuador. Mujica, former runner from Venezuela whose whose left leg was amputated due to cancer and uses a prosthetic leg, joined 15 other models from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Colombia and Ecuador to model creations by Ecuadorian designers at an event organized by the Youth Against Cancer Foundation which aimed to break stereotypes and social barriers for the young cancer survivors. Today, Mujica now swims at the paralympic level. (AP Photo/Dolores Ochoa)
