Woman raises funds for urgent neck operation in USA

A woman from Staffordshire is raising money to try to fund urgent medical treatment in the United States.

Former businesswoman Nina Parsons, 31, from Burton upon Trent, suffers from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which means her ligaments are too elastic and her head is sinking into her neck.

She is hoping for surgery in the US which will fuse her head to her spine.

BBC Midlands Today's Michele Paduano spoke to her.
