Melanie suffers from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which causes her skull to dislocate from her neck and spine.

The surgery she requires will see unstable areas of the fusion points in her neck, where some broken screws are, secured from the front with new screws and bone, in order to prevent the bone moving and compressing her brainstem and spinal cord.
