Thu, 09/23/2010 - 7:17am

The Winnipeg Free Press reports the story of Janis Ollson, the first person to essentially have her pelvis cut in half so that surgeons could remove most of her cancerous midsection. The surgeons then reassembled her.

The Canadian woman is being called a "miracle mom."

Ollson was diagnosed with the bone cancer, chondrosarcoma, three years ago while pregnant with her second child. The 31-year-old suffered horrible back pain during both of her pregnancies.
