Mahogany Heter, who lives in America, has a congenital peculiarity – lymphedema, in which fluid accumulates in soft tissues.
Due to this, edema is formed, which interferes with a normal life. Due to this, the leg of 23-year-old Mahogany stands out noticeably from the background of the other, and its weight is as much as 45 kilograms.
Doctors diagnosed the girl almost immediately after giving birth.
Treatment for this peculiarity has not yet been developed, so doctors can only stabilize and improve the condition of such patients.
A couple of years ago, the girl considered herself ugly, and this opinion was largely influenced by those around her. However, she did not give up on herself. She pulled herself together and decided to radically change her life.
“Even as a child, I did not consider myself beautiful. I was sure that this thing was given to me as a punishment, perhaps I was a bad person in a past life. But, despite this, one day I realized that I am stronger than this. I can accept myself like that. What I am. Today, I am proud of myself and my body.”
The girl was able to accept and today provides psychological assistance to others through pages on popular social media.
She does not hesitate to post photos to show herself and inspire people who have the same or other features that affect their appearance.
Moreover, the girl plans to work as a model, and has already managed to take the first steps towards a successful career.
