In this Feb. 5, 2013 photo, Yulexi Chevez is assisted as she parades down the catwalk using her prosthetic leg during the Bionic Fashion Show at the Metropolitan Cultural Center in Quito, Ecuador. Chevez, from Ecuador, is a cancer survivor who lost her right leg due to cancer. She joined 15 other models from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Costa Rica, and Colombia 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.
