There's an appeal for more money to support children and adults with extremely rare forms of dwarfism.
The Walking With Giants Foundation was set up by the parents of Alex Connerty from Maghull on Merseyside because so little was known about his condition.
We've met Alex many times over the years on Granada Reports. He's now 13, but remains the height of a much younger child.

The number of students in the North West gaining top grades at A Level is UP slightly.
With 24.6% of pupil getting A* and A grades, but like the rest of the country the overall pass rate is slightly down, with 97.6% students in England receiving A*-E grades, down 0.3%.
The exams have changed this year, relying only on a final exam and not course work.
Figures suggest there has been a fall in the number of students accepted on degree courses at UK universities.
Research by the Sutton Trust suggests that young people are less likely to think that getting a degree is important in order to do well in life.
