Tough times ahead for young dancer who lost leg to infection

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - There are some tough times ahead for a brave little dancer from Northfield who lost her leg to an infection.

Tessa Puma's mother says the 6-year-old will have to have another surgery Thursday to repair leaks from a wound vac. Then Friday, she has another procedure for skin grafting.

The girl's dance school is selling T-shirts to help with medical expenses.

There's also a YouCaring page where people can donate or leave a message of support.
