PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A Yorkshire beauty queen has spoken about the painful rare disorder she struggles with as she prepares to bid to be Miss England. Jennifer Carless, 18, is competing in the Miss Yorkshire pageant this weekend - and if she wins, will compete to be Miss England. But off the pageant stage, Jennifer has been struggling with a rare disorder - and she's hoping to destigmatise it. Jennifer, known as Jen, woke up in February to head to college, and found her bladder could no longer function. She had to be taken to hospital for emergency treatment and have a litre of urine drained from her bladder with a catheter.

Jen says the urethral catheter is 'undignified', but wants to speak out to help others be more open about struggling with hidden health conditions, HullLive reports. Doctors believe Jen may have Fowler's Syndrome. This is a rare disorder that usually affects woman in their 20s and 30s, caused by a urethral sphincter abnormality. Jen, from East Yorkshire, wants to raise awareness of the disorder, having never heard of it before she was affected by it. She said: "There are many women in the same situation as me out there and there is no cure for it at the moment. I have been with a catheter since February and have had numerous surgeries since then then too. "I was always embarrassed of it because of the stigma around it, so I decided to use my platform to start a campaign called 'Women's Talk' where I have been having chats with women that go through conditions such as endometriosis and postnatal depression to get the conversation started about subjects that aren't talked about often but need to be spoken on more.

." Jen was the youngest ever Miss England finalist in the 2021 pageant competition. She works with a Hull based charity to raise awareness of the dangers of single-use plastics overseas. Jen says pageantry has evolved from just being about bikinis to empowering young women with people skills and getting them involved in humanitarian work. "The opportunity that I had been given with Miss Yorkshire and Miss England is a great platform, especially because the young women that are entering are at the same age as what Fowler's Syndrome tend to affect," she said "So I thought it was a great opportunity to use that captive audience to go 'Right we can raise awareness here, and we can also raise awareness about other very stigmatised issues as well'."

The waiting list could be as long as three years. With not many treatment options available, Jen would have to pay in excess of £20,000 for the surgery - so she is currently fundraising for help with her medical treatment. On her page, she says: "There is very little knowledge around my present condition and research is desperately needed to help others, it is so undignified, but I am determined this is not going to define my life, in fact I refuse to let it. "Not only that, I want to open awareness about what I am going through, so to help others going through this very rare and debilitating condition that affects so many young woman, suffering in silence." The Miss England regional final will be on Saturday in Doncaster. Jen will be going to the University of Hull in September an says she is 'keen to promote Yorkshire to the world'.
