PAGCS member Ron Gorniak and his family are facing an uphill battle. Ron’s 21-year-old daughter, Lauren, is bedridden by a disease called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. This genetic condition manifests in many ways, some more challenging than others, and for Lauren, it has meant special accommodations to finish high school and, finally, a year of bed rest.
The only option is a rare surgery only performed by one doctor in the US. Lauren’s surgery is set for Dec. 4. To help cover the travel costs and other medical expenses that this surgery will cost, the family has set up a Go Fund Me page, where you can also read more about the disease and its impact on the family.
