Charlotte said that she was forced to contact the media as there was not much information about her condition and hoped that someone who reads her story and has the correct information can advise her.

"I hope someone who reads this article will be able to help me. I have so many unanswered questions. Do they live a long life? Do they develop cancer because they aren't having the proper foods? Is there a special trick they use to cope? Can we get a support group set up so we can share opinions and ideas? It is hard to find answers", she said.
