Sain Mumtaz elephant man

PIC BY IRFAN ALI / CATERS NEWS – (PICTURED: SAIN MUMTAZ) – A young man who suffers from a rare condition which has left him with a giant head has become a real-life BFG on his journey to be normal like his friends. Brave Sain Mumtaz, 22, was born with an average size body but an abnormally large head, legs and feet, which have all continued to grow throughout his life. His disorder has left him battling with various illnesses and made it difficult for him to get around near his home on the outskirts of Lahore, Pakistan. As a child he was told he suffered from Proteus syndrome – the same condition as Elephant Man Joseph Merrick – renowned for affecting only one side of the body. But the symmetrical deformity of his face and skull suggests he is suffering from a unique variation of the extreme condition. He once believed he had been cursed by God and that there is nothing for him in life – but thanks to his supportive family and neighbours determined Sain has embraced life. Pals call him their giant friend and are helping keep his spirits high on his journey to try and discover what is wrong with him and improve his day-to-day life. SEE CATERS COPY
