HOPELESS Jeffrey Ortega wants his size 16 foot removed after it swelled due to a genetic condition. Both of the 26-year-old’s feet are double the normal size and he lives in constant pain.
Jeffrey was born with Proteus Syndrome, a rare condition that causes bones, skin and tissue overgrowth, and affects just a handful of people worldwide. Proteus stricken his hands, hips, and legs - and he believes amputation of his left foot will improve his pain and stop the growth. Credit to Barcroft TV. Thanks for watching.
