"The story" with Jerry Hayes debuted on October 2nd, and he introduced us to the Davenports. Both of their children are battling a life-threatening disease with no cure called "Schimke Immune-oseeous Dysplasia. It's a really rare form of dwarfism." says Jessica Davenport.   The children, Kruz and Paizlee, basically have no immune system.  There was a 1 in 3 million chance Jessica and Kyle shared the same mutated gene that causes the disease and a one in four chance they'd pass it along to their children.  Kruz and Paizlee are two of six children in the United States with the disease.
