Web Desk: A 15-years-old Anna Hankins is suffering from a rare, incurable genetic disorder that makes her starving constantly.
In her childhood, she pinched food from her parents’ plate and ate entire cookies in one go. At the age of two, she was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Gradually, her hunger became so extreme. Her parents had to lock fridge and cupboards to stop Anna from over eating.
According to her mum, “We would get up in the morning and in the middle of the night she had gotten up and made a whole cake.”
‘If you’re not looking at the food on your plate she would reach over and grab some.’
Her first words out of her mouth were, ‘I am hungry’. She got bigger and bigger at time.
She even got into garbage in search of food.
Now she was put on special diet that includes vegetables, a little bit of meat, rice, fruit and vitamin supplements. But she can’t lose her weight because of not properly break down of food.
Recently, she loves competing in pageants and was recently crowned queen in an event celebrating women and girls with disabilities.
In the national Miss Amazing contest in Mississippi, Anna picked up a sash and a crown, after getting glammed up in a pink satin dress.
