Meagan Barnard’s lymphedema left her feeling suicidal and alone after she refused to talk with her family and friends about it. She hid her leg under baggy clothes and refused to wear a dress or a skirt for more than a decade when her school friends called her the Michelin Man and other cruel nicknames. Despite her insecurities Meagan has decided to go public about the condition in the hope that other young girls do not suffer in silence like she did.
