Christine Vencis is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner and a mother of twin toddlers.She is happily married and enjoys spending time with her family! She has done missionary work in Tanzania working with orphans at Mother Theresa’s Missionaries of Hope, as well as spending some at The Village of Hope working with orphaned children infected with HIV/AIDS.
Christine’s children have been diagnosed with infantile rickets due to severe vitamin D deficiency as well Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome by the age of 5 months.Her family has dealt with multiple medical specialists and state departments to get this diagnosis.Her children were ‘passed off’ by multiple doctors at some the country’s best hospitals.Christine’s children were actually removed from her and her husband’s home, before this diagnosis was found, for suspected child abuse.The department of Children and Families found no fault of either of them and the children were returned home in record time! They are still battling the judicial system.
Christine is a strong and motivated mother and wife and has experience with hitting dead ends frequently in the systems that are supposed to help.Her goal is to help spread the word about misdiagnosis and being a true advocate for parents and their children.
