Crystal never used braces or crutches, strictly her little hand blocks. Her legs are atrophied from polio and are of limited value to her. But somehow, she knows the importance of keeping them beautiful by taking care of her legs and feet with lotion, shaving them and painting her toes. Crystal cant stand but attempts to just for your enjoyment, and she must find a way to crawl up to get a glass from the cupboard. Her legs fail her and leaves her to crawl on the floor from room to room. She is truly a beautiful woman with polio legs that redefine beauty.
Crystals excited because a Chairem Fan bought her the first wheelchair she has ever owned. Hand crutching across th floor she gets on her bed to prepare her legs for the big day, then crawls across the floor to the dining room where she puts on shoes. Then its out the door, down the stairs, struggling in her unique way to the new wheelchair waiting for her. I love her unique way of using her hand blocks to walk and how her useless legs look once shes in her wheelchair.
