Emily Jones is 22, and is currently living with a feeding tube.

Growing up, she suffered from chronic joint pain, and at age 15 was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) type 3, a connective tissue disease affecting her joints, muscles, skin and organs.

Doctors gave Emily a feeding tube because she couldn't keep food or liquids down. It has been a huge challenge, but it hasn't stopped Emily pursuing her passion for beauty blogging and make-up tutorials.
