Erin, an 8-year-old Level 5 gymnast at Will-Moor School of Gymnastics in Mt. Laurel, N.J., was diagnosed with a rare bone disease called Progressive Osseous Heteroplasia (POH) in February 2008. POH, which has only approximately 70 diagnosed cases in the world, causes Erin to have extra bone in every major joint in her body. A gymnast since age 2, Erin remains in gymnastics because her doctor believes the extra strength and flexibility taught in gymnastics has helped keep her moving. The Fennells held their first fundraiser in October 2008 and have raised approximately $36,000 for research!
