Taranaki woman refuses to let rare condition hold her back

From Checkpoint, 6:24 pm on 1 March 2019

A year ago Taranaki woman Erica Perry set herself the goal of completing the Mountain to Surf half marathon - an impressive journey from the base of Mount Taranaki right to the wild west coast. For many of us that would be daunting enough task, but Erica lives with Millers Syndrome, a rare genetic condition which has affected the development of her face and limbs. Our Taranaki Whanganui reporter Robin Martin caught up with her ahead of race day.
