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.
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.
