South Jersey resident Kenny Krips will share his story of living life with a rare skin disorder on a TLC episode of "Two in A Million" to air on Wednesday [April 27] at 10 p.m, the Courier-Post reports.
The focus of the show is to bring together two strangers who share an uncommon medical condition for a chance for them to bond over shared experiences as well as spread awareness on their rare disorder on a national TV platform.
Krips, of Glendora in Gloucester County, will appear on the show with an Arizona woman who goes by "Bobbi" and shares the condition. A photo of the two appears above.
The condition they share is called lamellar ichthyosis, an inherited disorder described at Genetics Home Reference as a skin condition that causes sufferers to be born with skin that grows at an increased rate causing the skin to become scaly, dry and stretched, among other symptoms.
The Courier-Post said much of the episode outlines instances of bullying the two, and others with the disorder, have endured based on their appearances.
The show airs April 27 at 10 p.m. on TLC. Read more at The Courier-Post.
