Around the time Savannah Fulkerson turned 4, she became unable to spend any length of time outdoors. “We’d be outside about 20 minutes or so … she’d say, ‘I burn!’” recalled Savannah’s mother Andrea Fulkerson. Fulkerson remembers Savannah in so much pain she had “uncontrollable screaming like she got hit by a car.”

  1. Doctors could be so un sensitive sometimes. Instead of addressing the issue and referring the patient to a specialist, they pass it off as similarities to other conditions. I wish it wasn't true but, our country has one of the worst Healthcare system in North America.

  2. This condition can explain Vampire mythologically, when hundreds of years ago, sufferers would be classed as a vampire. I study history & marvel at how primitive human understanding was, to how it is today.
    I firmly believe, there will be a day when she will be able to walk in sunlight.
