  • EDS to be discussed with Katie Couric

    Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome will be discussed on the daytime talk show, Katie. It will air next Tuesday, December 10th at 3pm EST on ABC.  

    The EDS community has been following the tragic story about the Huber family's false allegations of child abuse. Their daughter has finally been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and charges have been dropped.

    Bria and Andrew Huber and Rana and Chad Tyson will discuss both of their family's stories and talk about Ehlers-Danlos.  Over the last few weeks, each news story has gone a little bit deeper into clarifying what EDS is. It's been challenging because there has been so much said in these interviews that didn't make the "final cut" for the short segments. We are hoping that the Katie show will present a more in-depth discussion of this critical topic.
