14-year-old Elisany Silva from Brazil is 6ft. 9inches tall (206cm) likely has a gigantism, Marfan Syndrome, or some other medical condition that causes abnormal height, but Elisany Silva’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.
