How can the Save Samantha website help?

Save Samantha was born over night as a fundraiser to help save the life of a young Mummy of 2 from Greater Manchester, Samantha Smith.

Samantha hopes by sharing information about EDS and her other associated health conditions she can help raise awareness and make a positive change within the UK health care system.

What is EDS?

What is EDS

Ehlers Danlos Syndrome – EDS is a condition that affects the body’s collagen caused by a mutation in the body’s connective tissue resulting in changes in the mechanical resistance and flexibility.

The lack of knowledge regarding EDS within the UK health care system is very apparent, not just in my case but in many others that I am being introduced to daily through their inspiring journey and constant struggles.

Life With EDS – My documentary to share my Save Samantha journey so far

“An extremely heartfelt insight into how EDS and other health conditions have affected Samantha’s life, how she has had to close a successful business and how she won’t let her health affects her ability as an amazing mother to her two young children.”

A documentary I created with The Standout Company to share my journey with EDS from pre diagnosis to how it affects my everyday.
