I was happy to see that the episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” featuring the Grys family of Pekin, Ill., aired last week on ABC. I spent a year following the Grys family’s youngest member, Jake, an 8-year-old with a rare and life-threatening combination of osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle-bone disease) and dwarfism. My original post was lost when I accidentally destroyed my old blog, so I’m posting the story again with a link to the online broadcast of the show. To see it go here. It’s episode 13. I don’t think they keep the episodes up for more than a week or so, so be sure to look before they take it down! I’m also proud to note that an image from my story – a wide shot of Jake on the operating table – was featured on the show. I’m glad I was able to help tell his story to a new audience.
