Keep Flying High! by Misty Green
My name is Misty Green, and I was diagnosed with Turner syndrome (TS) at 5 years old. There wasn’t a lot of information on the condition at the time. Around that time, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) began their study on TS. I was one of the first 40 members to participate in the study.
I work in customer service and have for the past 22 years. I am 46 years old. I have never married and have no children. I have hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, bad eyes, and mitral valve prolapse. I’m not sure what else I can say.
I am so thankful for the TSSUS for finally giving us butterflies a voice. More and more doctors are being educated and more parents are having their babies checked. I am so glad to be a part of this amazing organization. Thank you, ladies, for all you do and to my butterfly sisters…keep flying high and reaching for the sky. I love you all.
