Starvation is no laughing matter. People around the world are starving every single day, and we must find a way to help them before they die of malnourishment. It’s unfortunately one of those global issues that seems to have no end in sight.
This woman is an extremely rare case, though. Her starvation isn’t caused by lack of food or lack of funds, because she suffers from a rare disease that causes her to vomit up anything she eats. It is called Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS), and it affects the gastrointestinal system. It is a disease that pinches her intestines together, making it impossible to keep food down.
It must be a scary feeling to suffer from this disease, and I’m sure her loved ones and doctors are doing everything they can to help make Lisa Brown better. Their best efforts haven’t been successful yet, but one day in the future, they hope to find a cure for this horrible condition.
