Zebras Matter


Kayla McEvoy

My name is Kayla McEvoy and I am 15 yrs old. My identical twin sister, my mom, older sister and I all have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome(EDS). I also suffer from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome(POTS). Both EDS and POTS are considered rare diseases. My piece is entitled “Zebras Matter” because doctors are only taught to look for the horses, the common diseases, but they need to remember zebras suffer and exist too. Please help us raise awareness for the zebras
