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.
