My Giant Leg Won’t Stop Me Dancing | BORN DIFFERENT

WEARING a floor-length maxi dress Ada Thompson’s lymphedema is almost hidden but as soon as she starts to walk or has to pick up her skirt, it’s impossible to disguise her condition, which effects the entire right side of her body. Ada Thompson, 38, from Tyler, Texas was born with primary congenital Lymphedema. Even as a baby she had to wear extra-large nappies to accommodate the swelling on her leg. As she got older the lymphedema on her leg has grown to the point that she can no longer wear any form of trousers, having to endure rude comments and stares when she is out in public.
