It’s a good bet that very few of us have much awareness about research into rare forms of dwarfism. Step by step, a metro area mother is making more and more people aware of the issue. This weekend, The Little Giants Foundation will be holding a fundraiser to benefit research.
On the Channel 6 News Live at 4, Brian Mastre spoke with Erin Koesters and her daughter Emily who was diagnosed with a rare form.
Attached is Brian’s interview.
