Miss Barnard has lymphoedema- a condition which causes fluid retention and swelling in the body's tissues because of a fault with the lymphatic system. It means she has up to five pints (three litres) of excessive fluid in her leg.
Meagan was just 15 when she was diagnosed with this incurable disease lymphoedema, which resulted in an aberrant looking leg. And due to this unusual body part, she became a victim of humiliation. She was brutally taunted by her school friends and others, by calling her Michelin Man.
Meagan was so embarrassed about this disease that she decided to hide it from everyone and gave up on shorts, swimwear, and skirts. She even maintained a secrecy from her 27-year-old partner, Robert Neidenfeuhr.
But as they say, where there is a problem, there is always a solution hidden. Meagan also reached the hidden solution and decided to break the silence and speak out about this condition of hers. So that no other girls with similar kind of sufferings tolerate in silence.
Meagan has now embraced the situation completely and has decided to make the most of this life, which is a blessing of God. She is a true inspiration to all the females of the society.
''I really don't know how I've hidden this for so long. I guess I don't want other young girls to have to go through what I did. At the time I would rather have not been alive than have lymphoedema. After opening up, I feel so much happier. I was extremely depressed; I would come home from school every day, cry and ask why me- it felt like my life was over at 15," said Meagan.
