When Sara Geurts was 10, she was diagnosed with a rare condition known as Dermatosparaxis Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS).

Sara has very saggy and wrinkled skin much more than a woman her age should have.

There is no known cure, and treatment can only be supportive at best.

Still, Sara is thriving, using her condition as a way of raising awareness and break stereotypes.

Sara uses her condition to embrace diversity, as well as prove that looks are only skin deep, but true beauty radiates from within…and begins when you decide to accept and love yourself.

Sadly, Sara suffers from other symptoms that can make life difficult, including issues with her joints, skin sensitivity, and other internal miseries.

Yet she takes it all in stride, hoping to be a symbol of strength.

You go Sara, you're such an inspiration to many.
