Initially doctors assumed she had a cold, gave her medicine, and sent her on her way.

'Instead, they were flushing out anything good, so she wasn't holding onto any nutrients or water.' It is genetic, but because it's so rare it's very likely someone would not know they were a carrier.

In Wryn's case, both of her parents were carriers of the recessive gene, but neither knew.
