GUEST BLOGGER: Wilmington’s Arianna Faro Discusses Living With Rare Disease


Although my blog does not especifically covers KTS ( KLIPPEL TRENAUNAY SYNDROME )
I have decided to incorporate Adriana Faro’s article about her inspirational and heartbreaking journey with one of the most rare and cruel illness known to man, KTS.
