What’s more rare than identical twins? Mono mono identical twins, the term for when twin babies have not only split from the same egg, they share the same placenta and amniotic sac while they’re in the womb. Incredible already, right?
Teenager Isa-Bella Leclair, whose leg grew to twice its normal size is inspiring body positivity by posing in a bikini in spite of her condition. Isa-Bella, 19, was born with a genetic condition called Parkes Weber Syndrome, which caused her right leg to swell. The college student's leg grew to around 40lbs - leaving her unable to play most sports or tight-fitting jeans. However, the inspirational teen is now out to challenge modern beauty standards by showing her confidence in her body.
A shocking condition has left a woman with nearly 6,000 large tumours covering her entire body. Libby Huffer, 44, was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 1, a rare skin disease that causes non-cancerous lumps, when she was five years old. The mum from Fort Wayne in Indiana, USA, is thought to be one of the few people in the world with the condition. She lived a happy, normal life until her teenage years when hundreds of bumps began to develop on her skin. After the first outbreak, she was severely bullied by people who thought she was contagious and labelled the poor woman Lizard-Breath. The cruel comments were so bad, she changed her name from Elizabeth to Libby to avoid the painful reminder of the bullying. In 1993, while pregnant with her daughter, Libby's hormones caused her tumours to multiply into the thousands. Now the mum has more than 5,500 tumours from her forehead to her feet and suffers chronic pain. Despite ten operations to remove the lumps, surgery has failed and some of the tumours have even grown back. Libby’s last hope is for specialist treatment to obliterate thousands of the tumours in a five hour session. Recently she braved showing her skin in public in the hope of trying to attract funding for the treatment.

An aspiring model has bared her leg for the first time in ten years after a rare condition led to it ballooning in size. Meagan Barnard’s lymphedema left her feeling suicidal and alone after she refused to talk with her family and friends about it. She hid her leg under baggy clothes and refused to wear a dress or a skirt for more than a decade when her school friends called her the Michelin Man and other cruel nicknames. Amazingly Meagan even managed to hide the condition from her boyfriend of two years, Robert Neidenfeuhr, 27. Despite her insecurities Meagan has decided to go public about the condition in the hope that other young girls do not suffer in silence like she did.
