YouTube/Barcroft TV
Lisa Brown is a former model who is suffering from an extremely rare condition called Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS), which causes her to starve to death.
She weighs a mere 89lbs (40 kilos) and cannot eat solid food without severe pain, vomiting, or nausea.
In 2013 Lisa was diagnosed with SMAS, a gastrovascular disorder that causes a pinching of her intestines making it hard to keep solid food down.
Brown is one of only 400 documented cases worldwide. There is no cure for the condition, but Lisa continues to undergo corrective surgeries to make her life easier.
