Overweight males are often cruelly teased about their “moobs”, the common shortcut for “man boobs”. But the problem of the Ramirez brothers from the Dominican Republic had nothing to do with being overweight; they suffered from a severe form of gynecomastia — an endocrine disorder that caused them to grow fully developed breasts. As a result, the boys, who were aged 11, 12, and 17 in 2012, were often degraded, bullied, and even beaten for their appearance. The abuse got so bad that Felipe Ramirez, the boys’ father, grew desperate to seek help for his sons because as a food stall vendor, he couldn’t afford to pay for their treatment. Fortunately, Dr. Pedro Delgado, head of the Marcelino Velez Santana Hospital, agreed to finance breast-removal operations for the boys, and after 2-hour procedures, the Ramirez brothers were given the chance to lead normal lives.
