Chandra felt concerned regarding her daughter’s health when she came face to face with the rare disorder at the young age of 16.
After a casual hangout with her friends, Sarina, Chandra’s eldest daughter, felt constant attacks of nausea and vomiting. At first, Chandra thought it was a minor case of food poisoning; however, it was severe than what she believed.
