The girl affectionately called “Bean” has a disease called Lamellar Ichthyosis which makes the girl –– walk bent over, her “skin flakes off” and causes her to overheat.
A family member has explained how Bean wants to be treated in a heart-warming post which has been viewed nearly 50,000 times online.
“If you can’t tell right away she looks a little… different,” the post reads. “She will walk bent over like a little old lady sometimes and has flexibility problems.
“She has never been able to sit cross legged and has trouble squatting.”
It is not known where the girl is from.
The family’s post comes after doctors were stunned by a real-life Benjamin Button birth in Magura in Bangladesh.
The post goes on to make it clear to the reader the “polite” approach to meeting “Bean”.
“All too often we get stares, whispers of people who think we don’t notice,” the family member writes.
“If any of you see someone with an obvious ‘disfiguration’ please just walk up to ask.
“It’s much more polite and it satisfies your curiosity. Win/Win!
“I wouldn’t trade her for anything.”
Bean’s story comes as a bloke whose face became deformed leaving him looking like an alien is hoping he can have corrective surgery.
