Posted on 09/13/2012 9:59:47 PM PDT by rawhide
She made her national debut on Maury in 2009, and a YouTube clip grabbed from the show titled Most Ugly Woman in the World has garnered almost 5 million hits.
It probably doesnt help that CBS, the New York Daily News, the Telegraph, and even the German Der Spiegel all equally sensationalized her as the girl who must eat every 15 minutes to survive or doctors baffled by worlds thinnest woman.
At 23, doctors think Lizzie Velasquez has a form of the rare neonatal progeroid syndrome, which accelerates her aging and makes it almost impossible to gain weight. Blind in one eye, indeed, she does have to eat between 5,000 and 8,000 calories a day, and has never been more than 62 pounds, according to reports.
And born at just 2lbs and 10 oz, doctors say its a miracle she even survived. According to her mother, the doctors also warned it was possible that Velasquez would never walk, would never be able to eat on her own, and even encouraged the mother to reconsider having any more children. But, to everyones astonishment, Velasquez grew, healthy brothers and sisters were born, and her parents never treated her any differently than the others.
But she realized how different she was when she entered school. She recalled: I was called skinny bones, that was a really big one grandma, because a lot of people told me I looked really old. Um, pork chop legs?
Someone emailed her: Hi Lizzie, I was just looking at your picture and you are very ugly. How are you a cheerleader?

She is beautiful to me, because of what she has inside of her.
She’s a doll compared to Helen Thomas.
Or compared to the Wookie.
The ugly ones are those who would insult this strong and courageous woman.
Likewise, some people are ugly on the inside, like the people that are trying to drive this woman to suicide by endlessly attacking her ego. I’d like to see a karmic pitbull rip the faces off such people.
I thought this was the face that would appear. What a hag. Helen Thomas is like Satan incarnate.
I’ve seen uglier.
Ever been to a NOW convention?
You are right! The Daily Mail has a very goo article with many more pictures. Thanks. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2202512/Worlds-ugliest-woman-Lizzie-Velasquez-gives-courageous-interview.html?ICO=most_read_module
Why does Michelle 0bama have so much hair on her forehead??? Has that always been there? Does she sometimes get it waxed or something?
Not trying to be mean, but I’ve never noticed that before. That picture really accentuates it.
God loves her
please, nobody post those Hillary pics!
She's not ugly, she's an inspiration.
There is a greatness in her soul.
