Dwarfism Awareness Fact #4

Dwarfism Awareness Fact #4:

My dwarfism makes me one in 500 million and a year ago on this day doctors confirmed it! It’s been a year since doctors release the medical article announcing they had found the gene that causes Saul Wilson Syndrome.

Doctors used the DNA that I provided seven years prior and studied a few other patients (and myself) at the National Institute of Health and gathered the research they needed to prove the article they had written. A year ago today this picture was used in press releases around the world and the story started to be shared more and more.

I advocate for my dwarfism because when I was growing up I didn’t have someone like me to do that and my dream has always been to help the others get answers I never had. I want them to know that someone like them cares that much.
