Lizzie Velasquez, age 21 and a student at Texas State University, has to eat 60 (not a typo!) small meals a day to survive. Yet she only weighs 56 pounds.
Afflicted with a very rare genetic disorder, Lizzie is, otherwise, an inspiring dynamo who gives motivational speeches.
Her highly-anticipated book will be available in the fall.
In this video, Lizzie's dedicated parents - Lupe and Rita - explain how they had to dress her in doll clothes when she was a newborn, as regular baby clothes didn't fit their teeny girl.
