Anorexia Nervosa. Help needed for friend.

A friend of mine is so skinny. She can't keep food down most of the time. The doctor said she must eat 3500 calories per day to gain a pound a day. If she doesn't gain weight soon, she can die from a massive something-or-other (I forget how she worded it. Coronary? Stroke?) She is 5'7" and weighs aobut 79 lbs.

I know this might not be the right board on which to post my question, but I thought that since so many health-minded people are on here, maybe someone can point me in the right direction as to where to find help.

Oh, and they are a very poor family. They get $500 a month to live on. Her husband can't work coz he has to care for her around the clock. So they can't afford any expensive care. They don't have a computer so I thought I'd do some research for them, something to increase her appetite. She tried THC and that helped but the doc won't give it to her coz there are drug-related problems in her home.

I hope someone can help. Is there a board for Anorexics maybe?

In Christ,
