14-year-old Elisany Silva likely has a gigantism, Marfan Syndrome, or some other edical condition that causes abnormal height, but the Brazilian teenager's family can't afford a doctor to get a proper diagnosis. The poor girl can't go to school anymore (she doesn't fit on the bus), and she has the misfortune of sticking out everywhere she goes, which, as any 14-year-old girls knows, can be a real nightmare.
On the plus side, her knew-found fame brought on by news coverage may have a payoff. She reportedly has been approached to work as a runway model, something that she has dreamed of doing.
