Maya Brown-Zimmerman

In this episode of Staying Connected, we talk to Maya Brown-Zimmerman, who was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome as a child. Because of her atypical features and medical events, her diagnosis was questioned several times and she was tested for VEDS and Loeys-Dietz before a genetic test revealed she does have an FBN1 mutation, associated with Marfan syndrome. In this episode, she shares her story with Marfan syndrome, advocacy, and her recent SCAD, or spontaneous coronary artery dissection.
