This is the Kassie Myers Medical Fund. These funds will be used to pay for the doctors visits to better her quality of life.

My daughter Kassie is 15 years old. She was diagnosed with type 3 Ehlers-Danlos (EDS)on December 5, 2011. She has an extreme form of hypermobility in her joints. EDS is a connective tissue disorder. It can affect the joints and the heart and any other connective tissue in your body.

We are trying to figure out what this has affected on her. It is different for every EDS patient.

She is very limited in the things she can do. We are trying to raise money to get her the care she needs. She visits several doctors on a weekly basis.

We are currently trying to save her knees. We are trying to find doctors who are willing to try and operate to fix her knees so she can keep walking. She is not allowed to run or jump, she can not do any activities that are hard on her joints. She can dislocate her joints just by walking or twisting the wrong way. She is in constant pain.

Please help me try to better her quality of life. Their is no cure and no treatment. All that can be done for her is to treat her symptoms as we find them.

Thank you for your support!
