Instead of Hair, Woman Grows Fingernails Out of Every Hair Follicle

It is a medical mystery that's baffling physicians. A Memphis woman whose name is Shanyna Isom suffered an allergic reaction to steroids she given was for an asthma attack in September 2009, since then she has been eaten alive by a debilitating skin disease doctors have yet to diagnose. She produces 12 times the number of skin cells per hair follicle and instead of hair, her skin follicles produce human nails. Shanyna is believed to be the only person on the planet with this disease. Currently, she's in debt and owes about $250,000 in outstanding medical bills. If you've got some extra coins and want to help Shanyna, go here.
