Global genes: “Anna was born with xeroderma pigmentosum (or XP). XP is a rare inherited disease that causes her to be extremely sensitive to the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation. … Daily living is a bit different for Anna. Each day, Anna’s skin is covered with sunblock and lotions. She must remain indoors to be completely safe. Before going outdoors on occasion, Anna must wear shoes, long pants, long-sleeved shirts, gloves, sunglasses and, as she gets older, a custom-made hat with a specialty UV-blocking plastic face shield.” Click in to learn more about Anna, a little Mormon girl who is featured on the Global Genes Project.
