Melanie’s life is at risk and she needs your help. Melanie is 27 and a bubbly recent graduate of the School of Biology at Newcastle University. She lives in Cramlington where her Mum, Molly, is her sole carer.
She suffers from a severe form of the rare condition, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), which causes all her joints to dislocate – especially those of her spine and neck! This has lead to a very severe case of Cranio-Cervical Instability (CCI). The prognosis for severe EDS and CCI without surgery is a progressive decline in neurological symptoms, and worst case scenario ultimatley can be paralysis & death.
Unfortunately, EDS specialists able to perform the specialist and potentially life-saving CCI fusion can only be found in the USA & Spain, so Mel MUST travel and SELF-FUND her own potentially life-saving surgery, the cost of which is greatly over £80,000.
