She herself had to have a prosthetic leg attached that had to be changed several times as her leg healed, which had made her realize that there were thousands of prosthetic limbs that had been discarded by other patients and were available. She had used these discarded limbs to rehabilitate citizens of Croatia who had lost their limbs to landmines. She had been awarded £ 200,000 as a reward for her injury and earned another £ 180,000 from interviews with the media. She had used that money to set up the ‘Heather Mills Health Trust’ that is provided toward delivering prosthetic limbs to the needy. In 1995, She had published a book titled ‘Out on a Limb’ with the help of a ghostwriter, which had been re-published in 2002 as ‘A Single Step’.
