Fundraising to help woman whose brain is 'coming away from skull'

A woman whose brain is dropping out of her skull because of a rare syndrome is trying to raise £130,000 for lifesaving surgery.

Sarah Gearing, 40, from Rochford, Essex, has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which makes the collagen in the body and connective tissues faulty.

The surgery she needs involves a total neck fusion to put her brain back in place and relieve pressure on her spinal cord.
