Jeremias was diagnosed with vEDS after they got the diagnosis for Miles, one of his three children who is now 9 years old. One of his other kids, Henry, was also diagnosed at that time. If his wife, Rachel, had not pushed for a diagnosis, they likely would not have the answers they have today.
Jeremias is 33 now and has been fortunate to have few life-threatening complications so far. He has had a lot of lung issues, and a partial collapsed lung during a bout of bronchitis earlier this year. They’ve gotten a plan set up at school for the teachers to follow in case of emergencies for Henry and Miles and have good docs in Texas that follow them!
