My story

[p]After a very happy and healthy childhood, Ella, my daughter started suffering with abdominal pain and vomiting in her early teens. She was turned away from multiple clinicians and hospitals all of whom told us it was in her head and there was nothing wrong.[/p][p]Over time her symptoms got worse and her health deteriorated further. After several years, a private consultation and subsequent NHS appointments, our beautiful girl was given the life changing diagnosis of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a genetic illness that has changed her life completely. It is an illness that will not go away and it is still very poorly understood. Ella is still some way from getting the care she needs and deserves but we continue to fight for her.[/p][p]EDS Support UK are an amazing charity doing some fantastic work raising awareness with clinicians and research is starting to become stronger.[/p][p]Any support you offer through donations will be so very appreciated.[/p][p]Thank you 😃[/p]
