My Story
"I was on top of the world, then my world started to spin."
Colleen McEdwards was diagnosed with a serious vestibular condition after years of being subjected to the bright lights, loud noises, and intense stress of her job as a CNN anchor.

Off balance, spinning, and losing her hearing, Colleen retired from CNN and now teaches journalism at Georgia State University. Colleen wants to raise awareness about balance disorders, so today, she shares her story in honor of Balance Awareness Week.

Colleen wanted to give back to help other vestibular patients, so she joined VEDA's communications committee where she's helping to reach out to patients who may not know what a vestibular disorder is or that there is something you can do about it..

You can help Colleen by making a contribution to her personal campaign page..
