When she was a child, Mandy had an inborn genetic defect. Unfortunately, her legs kept on growing until they were twice as large as Mandy. Soon enough, she had to make the heart-breaking decision to amputate her legs because of a heart infection. Nonetheless, this did not stop her legs from growing. But no matter how the odds were against Mandy, she faces life with a smile on her face and a heart that’s full of love and compassion. Luckily, with the combined efforts of Cambridge doctors, it is said that they have found a pill that can possibly correct the genes that cause Mandy’s legs to grow bigger than usual.
