Slideshow: Fabienne Jean, Three Years After The Haiti Earthquake

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 this month. 

A prosthetic technician from Boston heard Fabienne story and fitted her with a fake leg. He tried to help Fabienne recover in other ways, too.

He hatched plans to help her start her business, buy a house and open a dance studio to raise money for Haitian amputees. 

But as reporter Jacob Kushner discovered, Fabienne's recovery has been a slow, frustrating process. 

Photographer Nick Kozak worked with Kushner and documented Fabienne's everyday life. View the slideshow above to experience her daily routine through Kozak's lens, and click on the audio link to hear part III of our series.
