Outrageous leg growth!!!! (viewer discretion advised)

Mandy Sellars was born on the 20th of February 1975 in Lancashire, United Kingdom. She was born with a rare genetic mutation that has resulted in extra ordinary growth in both of her legs. Ffrom birth she has been battling with legs that wouldn't stop growing. Her condition is known as Proteus syndrome.

Doctors later discovered a PIK3CA gene mutation in Mandy. So far she is the only woman in the world to have it. Her legs are three time bigger than the normal legs and weigh about 50 pounds. Her legs were amputated in 2010, after series of complications, but her legs grew back.
