In this case, Sellars has her legs grows in different way to the normal people. The experts said there have been 120 person in the world diagnosed with the same condition.
It was two years ago that Sellars’ foot infected with septicaemia, the virus that caused Proteus Syndrom. Before the misfortune occurrence, she was able to enjoy her life happily by taking as much walking and social activities as she wanted. But, as doctors said that the virus could have caused her dead, she let the doctors to amputate one of her legs.
But now, 22 months later, the stump is growing back. It is growing back so fast that it almost breaks the prosthetic leg.

But she is now striving on having positive thinking on everything she will go through by considering that there are also people whose condition is worse than hers.
