Woman who risks breaking her spine if she moves just a millimetre needs £750,000 for life-saving operation

A WOMAN with a rare illness who risks breaking her spine if she moves just a millimetre needs £750,000 raising for a life-saving operation.

Jenny Rowbory, 34, has complications from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which causes hyper-flexible joints, and has been bedridden for 15 years.


Her skull or backbone can dislocate by themselves after it got worse.

Her family hope to send Jenny, of Aberangell, Gwynedd, to the US for surgery but need to raise three quarters of a million.

Mum Ann Rowbory, who cuts her clothes off with scissors, said: “Jenny is in screaming agony 24/7, but unable to scream. Her case is beyond UK neurosurgeons’ training or experience.”

Stars including Oscar winner Olivia Coleman joined a fundraising evening streamed live on YouTube.

She was joined by actor Matthew Goode from Downton Abbey and comedian Lee Mack, and was hosted by BBC Sport presenter Hugh Ferris.

The total now stands at £45,000.
