Mandy Sellars was born in 1975. Doctors immediately knew there was something wrong with the newborn – Mandy’s feet and legs were abnormally misshapen and large. They weren’t convinced the baby would survive for long.
Nowadays Mandy describes herself as a part-time TV star thanks to her numerous appearances on TV. Her legs and feet have been growing at a disproportionate rate for her entire life and in 2009 it was estimated her feet alone weighted around 95kg. They are 3 times bigger than the feet of an average person. In 2006 Mandy was diagnosed with Proteus Syndrome, however there are no other known cases with such a rare form of the disease.
That doesn’t mean Mandy doesn’t enjoy her life. She has a specially modified car, controlled by hand. She has been living on her own without any live-in helpers ever since she turned 19. Furthermore, Mandy graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a B.Sc. in Psychology.
