Elizabeth Vacha lives with EDS, or Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, it is a rare disorder that restricts her body from producing collagen. Since she cannot produce collagen, there is very little cartilage between her bones. This causes them to slip out of place extremely easily. After a car accident two years ago, Vacha developed Costoverebral Chondritis along with her EDS. It is a rib dysfunction made worse by the EDS. The two disorders together have caused her ribs to come out of place and squeeze her intestines making eating difficult. Through the setbacks and the pain the most important thing for Vacha is keeping as normal a life as possible for her kids and family. This is achieved with tremendous help from her husband John who works full-time from home while taking care of the children and Vacha.
