Anorexia Woman’s Plea for Help

Rachael Farrokh, 37, has been on a 10 year long battle with anorexia. Farrokh has become so frail that she needs her husband’s help for everyday tasks including walking around.

Farrokh is also in a wheelchair when out and about. At 5-foot-7 Farrokh looks as though she has withered to nothing. However, she is pleading for help.

Her husband, Rod Edmondson, has started a GoFundMe page to help with the medical bills that the couple is facing due to the eating disorder. Farrokh’s weight does not meet the minimum requirement to be accepted into treatment centers or hospitals. So, she would have to get worse before she can get better. This is why the couple has gone public in their plea for help. Farrokh also wants other people suffering from anorexia to see what it can look like.

Farrokh has said to ABC News that,

“My sister gave me a collage of pictures of when I was acting or doing certain things. I look at that girl, the head shot, it’s only a few years old. It’s like I know I’ve wasted this much of my life. I just want to be that person again — that strong, independent woman that can be herself.”

Farrokh also told ABC News that, “I’ve had heart, kidney and liver failure and osteoporosis for the past seven years.” Farrokh believes the root for her eating disorder was when she lost her job and also dealing with a personal trauma. She would not say what the personal trauma was.

Hopefully, the couple receives the funds that they need to get help for Farrokh. From how her body looks she may not have much time.
