The story of Jayme

Hi, my name is Jayme and I am 26 years old. When I was born in 1996, my Mom along with Doctors knew there was something wrong but they could never figure it out. Fast forward to 2000 and I ended up even sicker due to the Walkerton E-Coli.

Growing up I kind of always knew that something was wrong with my insides but it wasn’t until February of 2017 that I had finally started to get some answers, after years of going through what seemed like every test under the sun.

In March of 2018, I underwent Surgery for Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome. Undergoing Surgery has helped with some of the symptoms due to this illness but I am still battling daily due to this illness. I have also been diagnosed with Nutcracker Syndrome.

One thing I have truly learned is that you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

I choose to share my today today because every story matters. Also, the best way to raise awareness to these rare illnesses is to open up and bring light to these illnesses.
