Chris was diagnosed in 1995 with Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome following his father’s passing. Chris was 22 when he lost his dad and found out he had vEDS. He is now 46 years old and has had two major knee surgeries, a ministroke (transient ischemic attack, or TIA), a fistula, multiple vein ruptures, and lives with a ostomy bag resulting from a bowel perforation in 2014.
