In this episode of Staying Connected, we talk to Mikala Tingley, whose brother, David had Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS). David passed away at the age of 24, and was diagnosed with VEDS after his death. Mikala is joining to share his story with VEDS. Please be advised, this episode does contain some graphic details about David’s death, which may be disturbing to some listeners.
