Well maybe I won't get any response. I realize there's no guarantee and nobody is obligated. That said there's an obsession or perhaps I should say delusion that a certain NBA coach was born with Waardenburg syndrome. First what is WS. Waardenburg is a genetic disorder. Fact is there is a worldwide consortium devoted exclusive to the syndrome. It's the "BBBlueeyes.jpgWaardenburg Consortium". Their notes are in every valid waardenburg syndrome site including the NIH. "Brilliant sapphire blue eyes", thick brows. rounded nose tip. ( source rarediseases.org. His name is Brett Brown. Phila PA Sixers coach. To me he fits these descriptions. Unsure if his eyes truly are a brilliant sapphire blue or close to that I am not a doctor. My father was born with this syndrome. A med. geneticist diagnosed me with it.

I can understand you being interested in Brett Brown having the same condition as you. I feel the same when I find out famous people have any condition I have.

I am only on this forum. I have not found any others to be helpful. For me I find quite a few members here have knowledge into bpd and that helps me. It is nice you have found support on another forum too. :)
