Mandy is a strong courageous young lady suffering from a rare genetic disorder called Rulers Danlos Syndrome. It is a connective tissue disorder that causes her body to literally come apart at the seams. It’s like building a house with rotted wood and rusty nails. She has had major arteries come apart, she has heart issues, her teeth crumble and break since the connective tissue is not there to hold them together. She suffers everyday in severe pain. Her doctors are 5 hours away. The money is needed for her medical expenses to replace her teeth so she can eat. Phase 1 of her treatment starts in September. $5000 of the money needed is needed by then.
