Brooklyn’s platform is Pectus Excavatum Awareness. Brooklyn, along with her sister & brother, were born with a deformity called Pectus Excavatum. It is a condition where the sternum caves in and presses on the heart and lungs. Brooklyn’s Pectus was a very severe case and she had surgery last July to have 2 bars inserted her chest. Besides affecting the heart & lung functions, this condition also has an impact on body image. She hopes by sharing her journey she can help not only others with this same condition, but also be an advocate for positive body image.
