Samantha Smith is a 30-year-old single mom of two who has been battling with an ill-diagnosed genetic condition her entire life. After 8 years of tests, Samantha found out that she has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), which is a disorder of the connective tissue that affects all the connective tissues throughout the body, causing Samantha’s joints to dislocate, as well as other issues.

The EDS recently caused Craniocervical Instability in Samantha, which means that the ligaments in her neck are too weakened to support her head, causing her skull to compress her spinal cord. This new condition has stripped Samantha of her independence.

There are no EDS qualified surgeons in the United Kingdom to help Samantha, so she is looking for help to travel to the USA and undergo a procedure that has been developed with 95% success rate!

Samantha Smith is a very brave woman. She had to deal with EDS throughout her life which is challenging enough as it is and on top of that she is also a single parent who is raising 2 children! She is so brave and inspirational as she keeps pushing forward! She sets an amazing example for all of us to follow. Life will get tough and you will be faced with many unexpected challenges, but if you keep pushing through and persevering, you will break through the darkness and emerge in the light!

Please share this video with your friends and help this young mother get healthy and strong again for her children!
