Excerpts Saturday! Dystonia and the Tragic Story of a Cheerleader

I was able to bumped into a youTube video about a story of a cheerleader who's life changed dramatically after a being injected with a Flu vaccine. She was able to acquire a rare one in a million case of disorder called Dystonia.

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder, in which sustained muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. The disorder may be hereditary or caused by other factors such as birth-related or other physical trauma, infection, poisoning or reaction to pharmaceutical drugs, particularly neuroleptics.

The video was shocking and heartwarming since it will make you realized how vulnerable we are to unexpected events, her life would have been perfect being married and beautiful with a good career ahead. Well I guess she was just unlucky!
