Sun Kissed: A New Documentary about XP

on October 18, 2012

UPDATE: The full documentary is streaming free on PBS.com. Click here to watch!

Debuting on Thursday, October 18 is a new documentary titled “Sun Kissed” that tells the story of one family’s experience with Xeroderma Pigmentosum.  I can’t wait to watch it!

You can check your local listings here to see when it airs on your local PBS station.

The children with XP in this movie have a type of XP that’s a different than what Anna has.  Anna’s is XP-D, and does not cause neurological degeneration. But Anna and the kids in the movie both have a 10,000 times higher chance of skin cancer due to their Xeroderma Pigmentosum, and both need to avoid all unfiltered sunlight.

Here’s a trailer for the movie:

I look forward to learning more about XP and learning about the plight of the Navajo tribe.

I hope you will watch it, too. And share it with your friends!

    I did watch it and it was very interesting. I used to live by the Navajo Reservation so it brought back my memories of there as well. It was sad to hear how the parents are blamed because of things they did in their childhood or for marrying in the same clan. I hope they find a cure someday.
