After teen has minor ankle injury, she becomes diagnosed with rare “suicide disease”

A 16-year-old girl along with her family are asking for the public’s help to cover the cost of a miracle treatment that would help the teen live to see another day.

In 2013, Moana Ruhfuss was diagnosed with chronic regional pain syndrome (PRPS) when she was only 11 years old after an ankle injury.

According to the Mayo Clinic, CRPS is a form of chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg and typically develops after an injury, a surgery or a stroke or a heart attack,

And while there is no cure, when it comes to treatment, both improvement as well as remission is possible.

The condition is said to be more painful than childbirth and has been dubbed the “suicide disease” due to the high rate of suffers who decide to take their own lives.
