For the past 17 years I have had the privilege of calling Ms. Brittany Crichton my best friend. We have been through dress up time, slumber parties, bullying, moves, broken hearts, pregnancies, weddings, college, surgeries and every other hurdle life throws our way. She is truly an outstanding individual.
In the past 3 years my best friend has been suffering through an extremely rare disorder, her ligaments are melting, her joints dislocate, she bares extreme daily pain, and she has had countless surgeries and procedures. She suffers what is known as Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, it is a degenerative connective tissue disorder, and even in its mildest form (loose skin and double jointedness) effects only 1 in every 5,000 people.
