WATCH: How a grant from Variety helped a B.C. seven-year-old learn to live with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease

WATCH: Hear the story of a mother who received a diagnosis of muscular dystrophy — and then found out her daughter has the same condition. This is how Variety stepped in to help.

WATCH: In 2016, we met Johannes, a young boy who suffers from a rare form of hemophilia. Johannes has endured painful bleeds in his joints that are extremely debilitating. Fortunately, Variety the Children’s Charity has been helping Johannes so that he is comfortable and safe.

WATCH: 16-year-old Trissanna is in constant pain. She was born with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, causing hypermobility in her joints, which constantly dislocate. Variety has been a constant for Trissanna and her mother – providing her with leg braces, orthotics, a body brace, and hydrotherapy, and physiotherapy sessions. The therapy sessions have been helping keep Trissanna’s joints flexible and mobile.
