BORN DIFFERENT | I Refuse To Hide My Giant Tumours

A youngwoman suffers from a genetic condition that causes huge tumours to grow on her legs and hips. Karina Rodini, 28, who resides in Curitiba, Brazil, was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type I at the age of two, the disease progressed in her adolescence years and since then she underwent countless surgeries and procedures in order to remove tumours that kept growing back bigger each time.

Now Karina says that her tumours weigh around 40 kg, but despite her condition, the young woman remains positive and hopes to inspire others to talk about their condition publicly instead of hiding it and suffering alone. She has recently set up a GoFundMe page in hopes to raise funds for treatment that could change her life.
