Everyday Saffron Taylor dislocates joints in her fingers, toes, ankles and jaw from simple tasks such as getting dressed or making toast in the morning.
The 22 year old, full-time mother of two, was diagnosed with Vascular and Hyper-mobility Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) last year.
Saffron said: “I had never heard of EDS when I was first diagnosed but I quickly realised its seriousness and I was heartbroken when it was revealed I had the most severe form.”
Her condition has been rapidly deteriorating and for the last six months the Birmingham resident has been forced to live off a liquid diet because chewing would dislocate her jaw.
