A special report on Murri boy, Quaden Bayles, who suffers from a condition that affects one in every 25,000 people - Achondroplasia, a type of dwarfism. When Quaden was three days old, his mother Yarraka and the family were packing up their hospital room to go home. Doctors told her about his condition but she refused to believe it. It took years before she came to terms with the news. Now, at four year's old, Quaden is only 65cm. During a routine check-up in early April, an MRI scan revealed his case had deteriorated and doctors decided to keep him in hospital. With rare access, Living Black travelled to Queensland to speak to his family and doctor's as they prepared for Quaden's emergency surgery.
