Elsyia – EDS

This is what gets me out of bed on a morning! Seeing smiles like this as people work towards goals that people say can’t be reached. I first met Elysia as part of my yearly community volunteer programme, I was looking to work with someone with long-standing mobility issues and Elysia more than met the criteria. Elysia has worked tirelessly over the last few weeks and continues to go from strength to strength, whilst also suffering from connective tissue disorder which makes things notoriously more difficult. At only 14 years old Elysia has shown immense courage, self-discipline and consistency and I’m incredibly proud of her!
