Stephanie Matto is a familiar face and name to many by now, as 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days has recently completed its season 4 run on TLC.
The 29 year old from Yonkers, New York, has been seen on the series pursuing a relationship with 24 year old Australian Erika Owens.
However, the pair’s journey was turbulent to say the least, with a number of rocky moments encountered as Erika tried to deal with Stephanie’s jealous tendencies.
Matto has revealed she suffers from a condition called aplastic anemia. The illness is a rare bone marrow disorder which must be carefully monitored to prevent it becoming fatal.
The autoimmune disease is caused when the body doesn’t produce enough blood cells. As there is a deficiency of all types of blood cells, particular care must be taken to reduce the risk of becoming ill.
