The family of the little boy murdered in the Boston Marathon bombing revealed yesterday that his young sister — whose left leg was blown off — may soon be walking again.

Bill and Denise Richard said their 7-year-old daughter, Jane — whose brother Martin, 8, was the youngest to die in the April 15 attack — underwent her 11th surgery Wednesday and has made great progress in her recovery.

“While she has more trips to the [operating room] ahead of her, last night’s operation marked an important milestone, as doctors were finally able to close the wound created when the bomb took her left leg below the knee,” the family said.

FOREVER SCARRED: Denise and Bill Richard — here with kids (from left) Henry, Jane and Martin — said yesterday that the girl was healing after losing her leg in the Boston attack. Martin was killed, while Henry escaped serious injury.
“Part of the procedure involved preparing Jane’s injured leg to eventually be fitted for a prosthesis.”

The girl has battled infections and other complications — and had to deal last month with the devastating news that her big brother had been killed.

“After not being able to communicate with Jane for the first two weeks, she woke up with difficult questions that needed to be answered,” the family said.

“There are not words to describe how hard sharing this heartbreaking news was on all of us.”
