What happened to Alisha Williams' feet? A look at 'My Feet Are Killing Me' star's accident
A horrific accident changed Alisha Williams' life forever. Now, she hopes that the doctors can help her walk normally again
For all you fans of TLC's 'My Feet Are Killing Me', get ready for a brand new season, as Dr Brad Schaeffer, Dr Ebonie Vincent and Dr Sarah Haller save lives, one step at a time.
In the previous seasons, fans have seen patients with various issues, such as webbed feet, Proteus Syndrome and even potentially cancerous growths. But the trio of doctors has always managed to fix these issues and come out on top. However, with the latest season upon us, they will now be dealing with some of the toughest challenges yet.
The synopsis of episode one reads, "A man with horns on his feet, a woman whose foot went through a windshield, and a guy that has "dead man's feet" create mysterious challenges for Dr Brad and Dr Ebonie."
If that itself is any indication, it looks like fans are in for quite the premiere. But as with all the episodes on the show, behind each condition is a heartbreaking story of a person who just wants their life t be normal.
This statement holds true to Alisha Williams, who is featured on the episode. Williams' story is truly tragic, she got into an accident, where her car collided with a tractor-trailer that was moving at 70 miles per hour.
Her feet at the time were on the car's dashboard and took the entire brunt of the damage. While she broke everything from the neck down, doctors saved all of her, except her feet. When she looks at her feet, she sees "total chaos, damage, trauma and sadness" when she describes it. Williams is looked after by her husband, Mike. And while he dotes on her, she claims that she feels more like a patient than a wife.
To her, her feet look like "it was chewed up and spit out by something that didn't like the taste of [her] foot". Seeing that she deals with constant pain due to her left foot being flat and wide, even walking is a tedious task for her. Unable to live a healthy and active life, Williams wants nothing more than to walk again and normally live like she once did. Although Williams' feet are badly mangled, she hopes that the doctors can help her rectify the issue.
'My Feet Are Killing Me' premieres on Wednesday, August 4, at 10 pm EST on TLC.
