Hi Anne,

Brooklyn Mills used to be a normal 16-year-old girl. As a cheerleader at her high school she was very active, engaging in vigorous workouts every day. But symptoms of extreme back pain led her to find that she had Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a very rare and painful genetic disorder. 

Save Brooklyn from further suffering. »

The pain Brooklyn experiences stems from her body literally falling apart. The collagen in her joints is weak, causing symptoms like loss of eyesight and the ability to walk. Unfortunately, there are no doctors in Ontario, Brooklyn's hometown that have the knowledge to treat this horrible disease. 

Now 18 years old, Brooklyn has received some relief from her painful symptoms due to treatment outside of the country, but the bills continue to pile up as OHIP refuses to cover them.

Urge the Ontario health minister to cover Brooklyn's medical care for EDS. »

Thanks for taking action!
