Rochdale News | News Headlines | Samantha Smith shares details of heart-breaking EDS journey through emotive documentary – Rochdale Online

Brave mother of two Samantha Smith has created a raw and honest documentary, sharing details of her heart-breaking journey with the genetic disorder Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).

Sam has created the 37-minute insight with The Standout Company to share how EDS, where connective tissue holding the body together is faulty and too weak, and her other medical conditions affect her from day to day.

Despite her own personal fight, Samantha is still campaigning to raise awareness of the genetic disorder which she says is lacking in the UK.

Due to several medical conditions, including EDS, psychotherapist Samantha from Smithy Bridge, whose brain and spinal cord were being crushed under the weight of her own skull, has had to undergo lifesaving neurosurgery more than once – and still requires further operations.
