SUBJECT 1:
He has CP.

He's pretty much totally deaf
without the hearing aids, but

he's fine with the hearing aid.

It's great for him, because he
really needs -- he had Botox

injections to stretch his muscles.

So all this stretching is exactly what he needs.

SUBJECT 2:
A neurodegenerative disease called Ataxia telangeictasia.

And only 400 families in the
country have kids with it.

He used to do Tae Kwon Do, and
he ended up competing as the

Special Abilities.

But as his balance got worse,
he had to stop doing that.

And this really challenges him
physically and mentally.
