Runner | Fighter | hEDS Survivor
“I am a Badass because I have an incurable connective tissue disorder. The disease slowly causes my joints to get loose and my tissue to become fragile, but it never STOPS me. Each year, I learn to train within my limits and push forward no matter the setback. Last year, I started doing Pilates and it slowly has given me a new lease on life by strengthening the muscles around my joints to stabilize them better. Staying active is the key to slowing the progression and keeping my sanity.
“For anybody out there fighting, never give up. Just remember head up, wings out, it’s time to fly! You got this.”
