At age 25, Jacqueline Crossley spent more than 40 days in the ICU at St. Joseph’s Hospital after she was diagnosed with a rare genetic mutation. When Crossley was admitted to the hospital in 2015, doctors discovered a blood clot in her portal vein and the clot had cut off circulation to her small intestine, essentially killing that organ. Crossley underwent emergency surgery to remove it.

After beating the odds of recovery, Crossley believes she has been given a second chance and followed her dreams to open her own dance studio- Studio 12.
