As Bryanna grew, she always seemed to have issues with healing properly. Eventually it was decided that various tests would be run to see what could be causing the healing problems. Bryanna was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome alters the biology of proteins in the body and can negatively affect various organ systems; causing joints, skin, blood vessels, and many other areas to have all sorts of health issues. Bryanna was also diagnosed with Von Willebrand disease, which is a lifelong bleeding disorder in which your blood doesn’t clot properly because of its protein makeup, causing the smallest of cuts to bleed extremely large amounts.
Despite the unfortunate health issues she faces, Bryanna remains strong throughout her daily life. She always acts kind and friendly to those around her. It doesn’t matter what is going on, she will always have a smile on her face. Bryanna loves school and hates when she has to miss class. A typical young girl, Bryanna loves toys, cute clothes, and various children’s accessories.
