Orange County, California, resident Rachael Farrokh weighed only 40 pounds when she finally pleaded for help from the public. The 5-foot-7 woman was hardly recognizable and was clinging onto life because of the disorder.
Thanks to her GoFundMe campaign, which raised nearly $200,000, she was able to get the treatment she so desperately needed. Now, she’s on the road to recovery.
When asked why all previous treatments have failed, she replied:
I was finally treated with respect. I didn’t know that I deserved it.
