22-Year-Old Girl With Permanent Feeding Tube Is Set To Become The Next Big Beauty Influencer
After suffering for years from chronic joint pain, Emily Jones was finally diagnosed at the age of 15 with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type 3, a connective tissue disorder that affects the collagen production in her body. The disease also weakens her muscles, dislocates her joints, and puts pressure on her internal organs.
Now, the London-based 22-year-old is waiting to get a permanent feeding tube, as she needs it to help keep down food. In 2017, she met her boyfriend Jack through an online dating app, and he wasn’t put off by her use of a wheelchair or the feeding tube on her face.

Now Emily works as a make-up artist, and enjoys accessorizing her tube. “My end goal for make-up would be to help those others with feeding tubes and make them realize that just because they have a feeding tube doesn’t mean that they can’t put on make-up, and doesn’t mean that they can’t feel beautiful,” she said.
