Nathan Hrdlicka, a 34-year-old resident of Santa Fe, was born with a rare disease - a bilateral D-type deficit.
The world has 25 people with this ailment, and the American is the only one who can walk, although it hurts him: the bones of his knees are under the pelvic bones.
Nathan's height is 137 cm, he is often called a dwarf, is stopped on the street, and is asked personal questions. A man encourages himself, says that he is unique since his ailment is so rare.
Despite the disability, Nathan was lucky to meet his love. He met 19-year-old Chelsea Stewart on Facebook.
They quickly found a common language and fell in love with each other. At first, the girl was worried about how she would date the guy who is shorter than she.
Their difference in their height is about 30 cm! But Chelsea accepted Nathan as he was born, they began to date, despite the multitude of "but" and obstacles.
Their couple is of universal interest, but beloved ones do not pay attention to someone else's opinion and gossip. Their difference in growth is not such a big problem. They are happy and really love each other.
Chelsea is very caring, supports Nathan, does everything to make him better. The girl, of course, wants more: she would prefer to go with a guy on hikes, but because of the state of her lover does it with friends.
The American found the only way to relieve his pain - holistic medicine. Since Nathan does not officially have a disability, he and Chelsea began raising money to cover medical expenses ($ 25,000).
The couple opened their own jewelry business. They want to open a rehab center in Iceland to help other people get rid of the pain with the help of holistic medicine. Nathan hopes to share his experience, do something important. And Chelsea fully supports him in this.
