WFAA: Good Morning Texas

At 11, Francesca Tenconi developed a nearly fatal skin disease that destroyed 85% of her skin. During her struggle to recover, she became determined to help other children having similar painful, isolating experiences. On her Sweet Sixteen birthday, she requested friends and family members give donations, rather than gifts, to start the Children's Skin Disease Foundation (CSDF) rather than gifts. It was the beginning of a remarkable organization -- and a camp full of Wonder.

Camp Wonder allows children with severe and fatal skin diseases to have "childhood without limits" for a week. Learn more about Camp Wonder here:
