She was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, or EDS for short, when she was 25 years old. Before knowing about having EDS she had many surgeries correcting things she tore due to this illness. Because she was diagnosed on a fluke, she was able to help other family members to be diagnosed, but most of the time EDS is not an easy illness to be diagnosed due to the lack in research.
She is an advocate for research for people with EDS. Please feel free to contact her regarding Ehlers Danlos Syndrome if you suspect you may have EDS. Awareness for EDS is gaining momentum and hopefully will be more well known throughout the world in the coming years.
