Nice one Sheri. I've popped it up on the GASIG Blog and mine too.

(Sorry if this was posted already and I missed it.)


"MIAMI (CBS4) - Sixteen-year-old Danny Lamarca is a student at Holmes Braddock Senior High School in Miami and like most teenage boys he loves playing video games and he's good at it too.

"I got fourth place and two weeks later I got first," said Danny. But video games weren't always a slam dunk for Danny.

"I have a skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa and I was born with it," said Danny.

It's a hereditary condition which makes Danny's skin sensitive and blister easily. It also affected the size of his hands making him unable to play the games he loves."
