Last week, a girl named Mackenzie Moretter from Shakopee, Minnesota turned 10 years old. Sadly, it looked like Mackenzie would be moving into double digits solo, since every single one of the classmates she invited turned down her invitation. "I was sad that no one was coming," said Mackenzie in the emotionally devastating understatement of the year.

Mackenzie's isolation from her classmates is due to a rare growth condition she has called Sotos Syndrome. At the age of 1, doctors discovered a tumor on her spine and she was diagnosed with the little-known genetic condition, which caused some brain damage and developmental delays due to the rapid growth of her skull, making socialization a challenge.
