Lisa Brown's life has changed drastically in a few short years. She went from being recently wed to the man of her dreams and graduating college with honours to frail, emaciated and not knowing what will happen next. The beautiful blonde model first noticed she was losing weight a few years ago, but it wasn't a big deal. As it progressed more rapidly, she became concerned and sought medical attention. It was revealed that she had a rare condition called gastroparesis. It prevents her stomach from functioning properly and causes nausea, vomiting and dramatic drops in blood sugar. For Lisa and her husband, Patrick, this changed all of their plans. Lisa became constantly sick after every meal and unable to move most days. There was no known cause for the disease, and no cure. She attempted surgery, which offered relief for a few months, but soon she was struggling and the pounds were slipping away. "I don't take anything for granted, even going on a walk," Lisa says. "I take it day by day, but I will never give up." weight loss extreme Her determination despite her devastating drop in weight is humbling. At 5'10", she is still teetering under 100 lbs, but new treatments have helped her put on weight and improve her nutritional health. Lisa's story and message of not taking life for granted is something we hope you take with you today! What are your thoughts on Lisa's message and unwavering spirit? Source: PEOPLE
