Jessica’s book is part of Bury St Edmunds exhibition

A 21-year-old who suffers from a rare medical condition is among college students to have creative work put on display in Bury St Edmunds.

Jessica Staddon, of Stowmarket, is the only person in the world known to have her particular strain of mitochondrial disease.

She is one of UCS Bury’s graphic design and communication students being featured in a Lift Off 2015 exhibition at West Suffolk College, which is open to the public from 10am-5pm today and tomorrow.

Her book joins a diverse body of work ranging from a tribute to comic books of the 1980s to a stylish branding of a non-alcoholic strawberry ‘beer’.

Inspired by her parents’ divorce, Jessica’s book is aimed at newlyweds and gives tips for marriage success alongside warnings of what not to do.

She has completed her course, despite problems with her eyesight, muscles and hearing.

“I try not to let it get me down, I just get on with it,” she said.
