Ellie Cole doesn't remember having cancer.
Or losing her leg.
Or the anguish and heartbreak her parents went through, sending their then three-year-old daughter under the knife for life-saving surgery.
She had been diagnosed with a rare tumour - a sarcoma that was wrapped around the nerves of her right leg - and it hadn't responded to chemotherapy.
Ellie's twin sister Brittany had been by her side through every hospital appointment and every chemotherapy session, and on February 14, 1994, she thought she was going to be wheeled in to get her leg amputated too.

"She wanted to be like me," Ellie, now 28, told Mamamia. "That goes to show the innocence of a young kid."
Ellie's leg was amputated above her right knee, but for her there's "no sense of loss or trauma" because she doesn't have any memories of it.
"Growing up with one leg was very similar to what it would have been like for you growing up with two, I don't know any different," she explained.
