And now Rebekah is leaving her injury behind once and for all; after 17 major surgeries in 18 months to try and save it, she is having her leg amputated.

But what we love best about this woman is her sense of humor in the face of adversity, and she's never shown it more than at this moment.

Rebekah responded to the moment that would devastate so many others by taking to Facebook and writing this poignant Dear John letter… to her leg (below)!

Have you heard of stand-up comedian Tig Notaro?

She's one seriously funny woman who once did a stand-up comedy show the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer!

Tig is one of the bravest, strongest women we've ever heard of. She did something most people literally have nightmares about: went up on stage and forgot her underwear. On purpose!!

Tig performed topless at Town Hall in NYC just last Thursday.

It wasn't just brave, it was beyond that. It was a statement. Tig had a double mastectomy to treat her cancer and never had reconstructive surgery.
