This fundraiser is for Julia Hunter and her family to offset medical expenses. Julia is the eldest of 4 children and is going into his senior year at Newburgh Free Academy High School in NY. She is also a member of the varsity baseball team and has been named a captain next year!
In December 2016 Julia was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), after ‘a lifetime of pain and eight years of tests, misdiagnoses and ill health’. EDS is a genetic condition that means connective tissue holding the body together is faulty and too weak, causing extreme widespread pain, daily dislocations, cardiac abnormalities and multiple other illnesses. It affects around one in 5,000 people worldwide.
