MANSFIELD, Ohio– Imagine standing at 6’7″ with a 44″ inseam and you are a woman. That is a reality for Ashley Britt, 26, of Mansfield. She has Marfan sydrome, a genetic condition that affects the body’s connective tissue and can cause fatal heart problems if undiagnosed and untreated.
FOX 8’s Melissa Reid reports, Britt can’t do anything strenuous for fear that it could kill her.
