A Newton Aycliffe family are taking to the stage to try and raise money for their daughter who has a genetic condition.

The 2CC show (3rd September) at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House in Newcastle is a fundraising variety show and this year Peter Towler has persuaded his three daughters Kieva 11, Melody 10 and Eve 7 to take part.

Melody has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

It's the same condition as Melanie Hartshorn whose story we have followed on ITV Tyne Tees.

Ehlers–Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a group of genetic connective tissue disorders with symptoms that may include:

  • Loose joints

  • Stretchy skin

  • Abnormal scar formation

  • Complications may include joint dislocations, scoliosis, chronic pain, or early osteoarthritis.
