Our 2012 little girl is 9 year old, Graycen Ann Beardslee, of Sikeston, Missouri. She has a rare and genetic disease, Xeroderma Pigmetosum. It means extreme sensitivity to the damaging effects of ultraviolet light from the sun and some indoor lighting. XP usually leads to skin cancer, can cause blindness as well as neurological diseases. Graycen has suffered 10 cancers so far. TTS is making arrangements to help her emotionally with XP camp and special orthodontic care.
