Bahumi Mhlongo posted a picture on her Instagram account which showed that her two legs are of different sizes.
The post quickly drew a lot of comments with some being downright snide and lacking empathy.
One fan asked: “Why does one leg look smaller than the other? They look out of place. It’s odd”.
Bahumi suffers from a condition called Lymphedema, or lymphatic obstruction.
Lymphedema disease is incurable, but with the right treatment, it can be controlled.
Bahumi’s courage to finally show her incurable disease also made other people speak about their conditions and speak about facing their fears.
