‘Nothing’s changed,’ says father of teen with EDSPosted April 3, 2016
It has been a month since the Ontario government announced plans to open a new clinic that will help diagnose and treat those with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome but local families struggling with the disease are not optimistic.
“Nothing’s changed,” said Bruce Smith, father of Caroline Smith, who has EDS, a genetic disorder that affects connective tissues and other systems.
“I’ve got a sick kid, no surgery available here and a lot of debt.”
