A 15-year-old girl from the Philippines is about to take a gigantic step in the right direction.

Jingle Luis was born with feet so clubbed they twist backward and upside down. It's so bad, she uses crutches to hobble on what should be the tops of her feet.

But that is all about to change.

The teenager and her mother have traveled from their home country to Montefiore Medical Center in New York City for a life-changing surgery that will take place today. She will also have follow-up treatment that will consist of slowly rotating her feet until she can walk normally.
