Theodore “Teddy” Berman was in middle school when his life-long aversion to cookies and cake became excruciating stomachaches and his body stopped growing.   Luckily, he ran into someone living with celiac disease and discovered the cause of the pain.


We talk to Brook and Teddy about the advent of a new disability in their lives and tell you how both are doing today.
