Boy, 8, Once Embarrassed Of Rare Skin Disease Meets Dog With Same Condition

Carter Blanchard's mom says for a while, her son didn't want to go to school, ashamed of his rare skin disease. But everything changed when Carter and his mom flew more than 2,000 miles across the country to meet Rowdy, a dog with the same condition. They were both diagnosed in August 2015 with vitiligo, a harmless auto-immune disease that causes a lack of pigment in certain areas of the skin.
