This week we've been bringing you the story of Fabienne Jean, a dancer who lost her leg in the earthquake in Haiti three years ago Saturday. A prosthetic technician from Boston helped Fabienne get a replacement leg.

He hoped to help her recover in other ways too: to start a business, buy a house and open up a dance studio. 

But none of these things came to pass. Late spring, Fabienne was struggling to find money to take care of her daughter and bedridden mother, who has since died.

In the final installment of our series, we learn where Fabienne is now. 

Below, you can see Fabienne rehearsing with other dancers at Haiti's National Theatre in December.
