This new series Two In A Million will start airing on April 6 and will include various duos meeting each other each week. One episodes of Two In A Million will show young boys Giovanni and Owen, who both suffer from Schwartz Jampel syndrome. This disease causes them to have their muscles contracted all the time.
In the preview for Two In A Million, one of these boys talks about how excited he is to meet someone like him. It explains that in a world of 7 billion people these six people have never met anyone like themselves. They have a rare disease, so there is nobody else around them like them, but Two In A Million will bring two of them together.

Broadway World shared a few more details about the show Two In A Million. The disease that Giovanni and Owen have is so rare that less than 100 people in the entire world have it. This easily explains why they have never met someone with the same disease. Their mothers actually met each other on Facebook and were able to bond over being parents to a child with Schwartz Jampel syndrome.
You will also get to meet Bobbi of Arizona and Kenny of New Jersey, both suffering from lamellar ichthyosis, on the show Two In A Million. This is also known as fish scale disease and it can cause their skin to scale which can end up leading to deadly infections if they aren’t careful. Their skin actually sheds in a way that looks like large scales. Both of them have to go through a lot every day including bathing, exfoliating, and moisturizing that can take up to two hours. They even have to use bleach in the water. This story on Two In A Million could be hard for some to watch because this disease is very difficult for them to live with on a daily basis.
Tiffany and Destiny have one of the most severe types of osteogenesis imperfecta in which they constantly break their bones. These two girls are adults now and want to learn how to live on their own. One of them shared that she was actually born with 26 bones that were already broken. You will also get to meet Austin and Elena, who have Goldenhar syndrome, a rare disease in which development of the ear, nose, soft palate, lip, and jaw can be incomplete. Austin was actually born without an ear on his right side. Austin’s mom shares that she can’t wait to meet another mom who understands what she is going through.
Two In A Million is already airing commercials on TLC, and viewers are excitedly sharing about it on social media.
