Count Your Blessings: Woman Has to Eat Thousands of Calories to Stay Alive (3093 hits)

I came across this story in a blog.

The 21 year old Lizzie Velásquez has a rare disorder where she has to eat at least 60 meals a day to stay alive.

This just shows people, including me, that we tend to forget how bless we are no matter the circumstance.

It is really great to hear this story. Ms Velásquez is very strong and inspiring.
