Undiagnosed tumor makes woman 6'5" tall and a millionaire8/2/2012
Being tall can have its advantages (especially at rock concerts) but for aspiring screenwriter Kate Woodward of Leeds, England, being a 6’5”, 336-lb 20-year-old has made her feel like a “freak.” So alienating was her adolescence, she took the British National Healthcare System to court and won over $1.5 million dollars for damage. Why? Because her height could have been prevented, had doctors not overlooked the tumor on her pituitary gland that turned her into, as she colorfully puts it, “a cross between a Michelin man and a stretched-out doll.” Hopefully the money is some compensation, and any UK “Long Elegant Legs” retailers: this is your moment.
