She was ridiculed for most of her life, she was a very strong and fearless lady.
You’ve probably heard of Mary Ann Webster, the woman who became known as “the ugliest woman in history”. However, her appearance is the result of an illness that dramatically changed her fate.
Although she was ridiculed for most of her life, she was a very strong and fearless woman.
Mary Ann was born in London in 1874 and grew up in a poor but large family. She has been a nurse since childhood.
The girl met Thomas Bevan when she was 29 years old, and they soon got married. The couple has four children. However, the woman’s health began to deteriorate when she was 32 years old.
Her joints began to hurt, migraines began, at times it became difficult to get out of bed. The doctors had no idea what was wrong with her and she couldn’t lie down because she had to work.
Her facial features became distorted and lengthened over time, and her limbs became thicker and coarser.
Mary Ann, formerly a beautiful and charming young woman, has lost her femininity. During that difficult time, Mary’s husband miraculously supported and adored her.
But fate had other plans for her: Thomas died, leaving the widow to raise four children alone. And she already looked terrible; passers-by stared at her, and every exit from the street was a real test for Ann.
She was happy with any job, as long as it paid well. She accidentally noticed an advertisement for a competition for the ugliest girl with a large cash prize.
Mary Ann decided to enter the contest for the benefit of the children, despite the fact that she would be the laughingstock of everyone around her.
