The Baby Who Bruised Easily
AIRED:
Since she was born, young Julia Smith has had bruises all over her body. Doctors think the bruises aren't serious, but eventually, Julia bleeds profusely, just because of a cut on her face from her fingernail. She is finally diagnosed with a rare blood genetic disorder called Glanzmann's Thrombosthenia. David Skinner, a husband and father of two, suddenly has difficulties walking and standing, suffers from seizures, and later, becomes paralyzed. His doctors believe he's just stressed, but actually, David has been dealing with a genetic disorder called Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis, which affects his muscles.moreless
