Episode Summary

EDIT
The Girl Who Stopped Growing
AIRED:
When Samantha Lazazzaro was born, she had cataracts, or clouding of her eyes. She had surgery to correct it, but now, she has developmental delays, and tremors in her body. Her younger brother, Jake, has been born with the same symptoms. Their parents are shocked to find out they both have a rare disorder called Cockayne syndrome, which prevents DNA from regenerating and speeds up the aging process. Eileen Collins has always been a big talker, but suddenly, she wakes up with a raspy voice. At first, her voice returns to normal during the day, but soon, her voice remains raspy all day. She speaks with the raspy voice, but yells normally, and has difficulty speaking clearly. Doctors believe she has a psychological problem, when actually, Eileen has a rare neurological disorder called spasmodic dysphonia, which causes her vocal cords to spasm.moreless
