(Scroll down for video) A young woman is blind in one eye after running in mud.
Brittany Williams, a mother of one daughter who lives in Dallas, Texas, ran in a mud race and woke up the next morning with a blind eye.
Williams said that he eye hurt and she thought that she got mud or some debris in there. “When I opened my eye, it was just like white. The whole room was white,” Williams said.
She went to a hospital and it was revealed that a flesh-eating bacteria had made its way into her eye and melted her cornea, leaving her blind.
Williams, who works two jobs to support herself and her daughter, was shocked when she received a hospital bill for $100,000.
Williams said that she does not have health insurance. She had canceled her insurance because it was costing her a lot of money and she never used it.
Now, physicians have refused to treat her because she does not have money to pay for the expensive treatment.
