A teenager has no other option to survive but to be fed through her heart. The 18-year-old each night fights a battle for her life, as her mother feeds her via her heart.
Jodie Vasquez has been diagnosed with connective tissue disorder. Connective tissue diseases feature abnormal immune system activity with inflammation in tissues as a result of which the immune system is directed against one's own body tissues.
Jodie has to face major problems. She suffers a constant pain, her joints dislocate easily, as a result of which she has to use a wheelchair.
Maxine Farish, her mother, has to go through a mental challenge while feeding her daughter, as a single mistake would lead to the death of the teenager. She has to feed her daughter via the drip; the essential nutrients are passed through a pipe, which is directly linked with her heart.
Jodie of Carlisle, Cumbria, has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type III (EDS). The disorder has had an adverse effect on the collagen in her body, which ultimately has an effect on the working of vital organs and muscular system, and nerves.
It was three years ago when Jodie was diagnosed with the condition, since then she has been struggling each day for her survival.
