Rachael Farrokh is recovering from her eating disorder.

NEW YORK (WABC) -- A woman who nearly died from anorexia has made a remarkable transformation.

Just last April, Rachael Farrokh weighed just 40 pounds when she was losing her battle with the eating disorder.

A new picture shows how she looks today, and the amazing progress she has made.

Farrokh gained weight and world-wide support after posting a plea for help on YouTube.

Her husband, Rod Edmonson, started a GoFundMe campaign to help fund her hospital treatment to fight for her life.

The campaign raised almost $200,000, which was twice as much as what the couple was asking for.

She's now speaking out and trying to help others in their battle with eating disorders.
