TOCA patient Cate Bossard will be one of the celebrity dancers in Dancing with the Stars, this upcoming February 20th at the Biltmore Hotel. This event is one of the main fundraisers organized by the Kidney Foundation and they are celebrating its 9th year in the valley.
Cate Bossard was a patient of TOCA’s Dr. Steen Johnsen. Cate‘s feet had become crippled with huge bunions and toes which had curled so badly, that she was walking on the tips of her toes on the right foot and on the nail of the toes on the left foot.
Cate has been very active in sports her whole life playing tennis, horseback riding, hiking as well as other multiple outdoor activities. This was all coming to an end. It became difficult to wear shoes. At this point Cate made the decision to take the time and try and get her feet back to some normality.
Dr. Johnsen took this task on. See the before and after pictures!!!
In Cates words…
“I am thrilled to be Dancing with the Stars event for several reasons.
THANK YOU to Dr. Johnsen of TOCA who rebuilt my two crippled feet between 2012 and 2014. Now I have twinkle toes enough to be able to dance in this very prestigious Kidney Foundation Event 2014.”
