Carson was born with a rare and complex tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. The condition causes fragility in the skin’s collagen and patients often have complications with hyper-mobility, easy bruising and tearing of the skin, detached retinas, dislocations and joint pain. The dermatologist hadn’t seen this type of condition in 20 years.
When he was learning to walk, just a small tumble would require stitches for Carson. Because of extremely sore joints, he can’t walk for long periods. He has a heart murmur and his aorta is enlarged which prevents him from any heavy lifting or exerting himself. For Carson, bruising can turn into bursitis with the bruise falling off leaving an open wound that can take up to six months to heal.
Despite Carson’s struggles, he has found low-impact alternatives to staying active and healthy. This year, he is helping raise funds for the 2020 Jim Pattison Children’s Hospial Radiothon. Donate to his page today!
