Description

21-year-old Amy Soranno has been diagnosed and misdiagnosed too many times to count, yet the Canadian medical system is not supporting her. Her mother is forced to take her to the United States over and over again in the hopes of finding answers about Amy's condition, which at this point appears to be a combination of chronic Lyme Disease, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), and Sjogren's Syndrome. Amy is in constant pain, is ninety percent bedridden, and yet was completely healthy only two years ago. Her family has already spent upwards of $30,000 seeking treatment for her in the United States, but their search for solutions has so far been inconclusive. A documentary about Amy's condition, called "Amy's Complex Case," was released in May of 2015 to coincide with Lyme Disease Awareness Month. A "Go Fund Me" campaign has also been created to help the Soranno family with their medical bills.

They are also hoping to raise awareness and understanding for all of those suffering from invisible illnesses.
