Due to the syndrome, she does not gain weight at a proportionate rate to her growth in height. Moreover, it also affects her eyes, bones, brain, and heart which gives her prominent features.

During her TED talk, she vulnerably disclosed she wanted to scrub out the syndrome from her face.
Lizzie’s condition is one of the biggest mystery in the medical world as doctors did not expect her to be alive. She gave her first interview when she was just 17 years old on local tv.
