Brennan L. - Shelby, Ohio - 2022
I was born with ichthyosis. I just turned 17
I used to play baseball and still play basketball.
Neither of my parents have it.
I have been on Fox News and the Mansfield News Journal and the community and my friends are awesome to me.
I hope to inspire others who dream of playing sports with disability.
Note from Brennan's mother: I’m amazed at how Brennan has been able to play basketball and other sports when he was little with all the pain he goes through. His love of sports is huge and I know he inspires others! He is a great young man that I believe has already changed the world and will continue to do so!

Neither FIRST, its Board of Directors, Medical & Scientific Advisory Board, Board of Medical Editors, nor Foundation staff and officals endorse any treatments listed here. All issues pertaining to the care of patients with ichthyosis should be discussed with a dermatologist experienced in the treatment of their skin disorder.
