Good Websites...
These websites were helpful to me because they was in easy words and explained basically everything I wanted to know about albinism.
They also showed a lot about the life of an albino and how they are just like you and me, only they have a bit more limitations than we do. The websites answered all of my questions and they have been the most helpful on my whole journey of this project. Easy enough to say that they are full of information but another thing that makes them so much better is that i can actually understand what albinism is and how it can affect the average person. To the right is a picture of an average albino girl.---->


Another Albinism Website And Child.....
Dylan Uehling, 5, has albinism and attends Hartford Elementary School.
Dylan Uehling, 5, has albinism and attends Hartford Elementary School.

Dylan Uehling is a pretty typical 5 year-old boy.
He loves to play outside. He loves playing Mario Kart on the Wii. And he loves anything to do with monster trucks and cars.
But there's one major thing that sets him apart from the rest of the kids in his West Central junior kindergarten class, the color of his skin.


It's white, really white. He doesn't have any freckles. He doesn't have a tan in the summer. He doesn't have any pigment in his skin whatsoever.
Uehling was born with albinism, a genetic condition that doesn't allow his body to make melanin, a chemical in the body that colors the skin, eyes, and hair. But it's not just the lack of pigment in his skin that's an issue. He also struggles with vision problems. It's hard for him to focus, and he has a particular sensitivity to light. Uehling also is far-sighted and has an astigmatism.
Despite all that, however, "he's a happy-go-lucky kid," Uehling's mom, Samantha Rinder says. "He doesn't know he's any different than you or me at this point."
That's bound to change Rinder says, especially as Uehling gets older. "Nobody knows anything about albinism because it is so rare," she says. "If you look back at movies and cartoons, the person with albinism is always portrayed as dumb, or stupid even. That's not the case."
That's why Rinder is committed to educating others and raising awareness about albinism. She's starting with a bowlathon at Ten Pin Alley in Hartford today to raise money for the National Organization of Albinism and Hypopigmentation.
