Meet the man suffering from a one in two million genetic disorder - which slowly turns his muscles to bone

***EXCLUSIVE*** Meet the man suffering from a one in two million genetic disorder - which slowly turns his muscles to bone. Joe Sooch, 29, has fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), or 'Stone Man Syndrome', and has lost 95 per cent of his movement. He uses a wheelchair and needs help with everything from eating to going to the toilet. Joe, who documents his daily life on YouTube, said: “Imagine breaking your arm and you are in a cast - but it’s permanent. “Bones are just growing and locking my body into place, I can’t get surgery because more bones will just grow.” He describes the feeling of ligaments turning into bone as “knives pushing into your muscle until it’s just solid". As the disorder has progressed, Joe has experienced life with and without a visible disability, and uses his podcast to advocate for others with medical differences.

The youngster has worked her way up to a red belt in the sport - just one step below a black belt. Olivia used lockdown to focus on her taekwondo, training every single day in the spare room – which her parents turned into a gym.

***EXCLUSIVE*** Eight-year-old Amelie Round was diagnosed with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP) four years ago, a lifelong and progressive condition which affects less than 0.1 per cent of the population.  The crippling disorder affects the message pathways from Amelie's brain, causing her muscles to tighten and overwork.  It means the smallest movements cause pain and Amelie is unable to walk unaided, using a walking frame, sticks, an adapted bike and a specialised buggy for longer distances.  Her parents, Rose Moore and Jay Round, are raising money for Amelie to receive pioneering treatment in the US which could change her life and ease many of her symptoms.
