Soccer Club Supports Teammate With Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

Watch this TV news video about Madison whose soccer team helps raise awareness for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and funds for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

MIAMISBURG, Ohio (WDTN) — A local soccer club is showing support for one of its teammates by throwing strikes to raise awareness for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

The SouthStars Soccer Club Team Lightning hosted a bowl-a-thon Sunday afternoon at Poelking Lanes South in honor of Madison.



Madison struggles with a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. EDS is a debilitating lifelong condition not commonly diagnosed. While the disorder is a daily struggle for Madison, it doesn’t keep her from going to school and playing soccer.

Funds raised at Sunday’s bowl-a-thon will be donated to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, where Madison has been a patient since she was two-and-a-half years old.


Activities like these are great ways to increase recognition of Ehlers-Danlos in the community and support those in need.
