After The Haiti Earthquake, Fabienne Jean Dances Again
All this week we've been bringing you the story of Fabienne Jean, a dancer who lost her leg in the earthquake in Haiti three years ago. A prosthetic technician from Boston helped Fabienne get a replacement leg.
He hoped to help her recover in other ways too: to start a business, buy a house and open up a dance studio.
But none of these things came to pass. Late spring, Fabienne was struggling to find money to take care of her bedridden mother and adopted daughter.
In the final installment of our series, Jacob Kushner tells us where she is now.
Below, you can see Fabienne rehearsing with other dancers at Haiti's National Theatre in December.
