Theo is a local child from Greenville, Indiana who was diagnosed with albinism when he was three weeks old.

Little Theo is 1 in 17,000 people affected by this condition which prevents his body from producing melanin.

People with albinism, commonly referred to as albinos, have reduced pigment in their skin, hair and eyes.

In addition to the social stigma people with albinism experience, there is typically some degree of uncorrectable low vision. Many people with this condition are considered legally blind.
