Dwarfism Awareness Month

In 2008, Amer and Munira Haider were blessed with Ahmin, the second of their three children. When Ahmin was 9 months old, he was diagnosed with achondroplasia, a serious, progressive and lifelong genetic condition and the most common form of disproportionate short stature.

Seeing a need for increased research and awareness around the condition, Amer and Munira established the Growing Stronger Research Fund. Hear their personal story of raising a child with achondroplasia, how they were inspired to create an advocacy and research organization for this important condition and discuss their son’s journey as part of a groundbreaking clinical trial.
