In 2010 at the age of 16, she made the choice to undergo a series of limb lengthening surgeries. In 2018, she founded The Chandler Project, a non-profit organisation dedicated to connecting people with achondroplasia resources and community. Chandler joins me to share her personal story of living with achondroplasia, why she made the choice to get limb lengthening surgery and the latest news about the condition and what to expect from the upcoming annual conference.
