Jeffrey Ortega is just 26 years old – and he wants to have his foot amputated. Jeffrey suffers from Proteus Syndrome, a condition which affects only 200 people worldwide.

The condition leads to overgrowth of the bones, skin and tissue. Although much of Jeffrey’s body has been affected, it is his size 16 feet which are particularly bad.
