For men who think they can stand up to face any woman, meeting Yao Defen might have them giving this idea a second thought.

Defen was born on July 15th, 1972 in China. She is 7’8″ tall and weighs
440 pounds. He massive size is due to a tumor which was on her
pituitary glad but was removed to halt her growing.

Her growth
started very early. At six years of age, she was already eating three
times the normal amount of food compared to other children in her
village. By elven year old, she was already over six feet tall. By
fifteen, she was six feet and nine inches in height.

At fifteen,
she saw a doctor to see if he could figure out what was causing her
abnormal growth. She saw several doctors before they were finally able
to diagnose the cause, however, her family was unable to do anything
about it because the surgery would cost 4000 yuan ($640 USD), which they
did not have.
