ST. LOUIS, MO -

A woman who lost her leg in an accident -- has made a video that's changing lives.

31-year-old occupational therapist Christina Stephens posted a video on YouTube last month and thousands of people have watched it so far.   

The video shows how to make a Lego leg.

"It's mostly just for fashion.  You can't really use it -- I really would like to make another leg out of Legos that you can actually walk in, so as soon as I get some Lego technic pieces, I will probably do that," said Christina.

"Anything that happens, even some things might seem horrific to a lot of people, she will take it in stride and find something productive and positive to do with it," said Christopher Stephens.

Christina also says she's hoping her message can inspire others to understand that life goes on after amputation.
