  • Overview

    Imagine that you have a rare condition called Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) in which even the slightest amount of UV radiation from the Sun turns your skin to cancer; left untreated, you can expect to die within the first 10 years of your life. Also imagine that your brothers and sisters suffer from this same affliction, but your family lacks the resources to do anything about it.

    Join Dr. Andrew Krakowski as he joins Dr. Bari Cuningham to discuss her remarkable journey through the wilderness of Guatemala to a small town where an autosomal recessive disease has dominated the local population and cast a shadow on life in this village. Then hear how a new day may be dawning for these special people thanks to a support team that is now championing their cause.
