    There are other healers in the world. Chi healers in China can cure cancer

  2. Haylee Wyant on May 12, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Quit hating on her parents.

  3. veronica on May 12, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    it’s funny how the cameras are already in the hallway and then the room before she enters lmao tv.

  4. Linked Neurons on May 12, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Put how old she is in the name!

    This is annoying: 10 or 18?

  5. Love Life on May 12, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    I can’t get over how interesting she is and beautiful. She’s been through more in her young life glad she is still very cheerful ❤️

  6. Lisa Mondville on May 12, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I’m sorry but she’s on TT and I’ve seen some lives and she has got a very ugly attitude under this fake on camera version of herself

  7. A'isha Sallah on May 12, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    I know people smaller or the same size as her that have carried a baby full term

    It was hard on their body but they did it

  8. ጵኅዕብ on May 12, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Her eyes are gorgeous

  9. James Tropicals on May 12, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    She is cute

  10. Jeremy A. Medlock on May 12, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    She is so beautiful. I would love to date her. She’s a sweetheart

  11. Michael Sabados on May 12, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I went in to get a brain MRI after having many ocular migraines – turns out I don’t have a pituitary gland, the doctor wrote it off as an ‘incidental finding.’ But, since I was a kid I didn’t age as quick as others & I age much slower than others – I only started growing a beard & mustache at age 21. I have more estrogen than testosterone as well. I don’t have dwarfism as a result, like her though.

    However, I believe in Jesus – Yeshua Hamashiach. I’ve been shown many miracles on camera as proof. I believe he can heal me, and anyone else who may be effected by both physical ailments and evil spirits or demons. 👏

    She didn’t like shots so they didn’t give her GH… so the parents the reason why she’s 3 foot and not 5 feet like a more “regular” person. A lot of her emotional distress is caused on her condition, and it could’ve been prevented

  13. J K on May 12, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Joe Biden would love her

  14. Atlacoya on May 12, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    the first thing I noticed was how gorgeous she is like omg!! Her eyes are so cute like she’s an actual Disney character. She kinda reminds me of rapunzel.

  15. Ona Abulu on May 12, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    I think Shauna is a beautiful young woman with unbelievable pretty big eyes. Everyone is dealing with one thing or the other (every single one on planet earth). My advice to Shauna is to accept and love herself. Don’t try to figure out how many dumb people are around. Always be open minded, patient and tolerant. Kids being drawn to you is a blessing many of the so called normal people don’t have. Find out what you love the most about yourself (if that’s difficult for you, then simply create one), see it every day. You have nothing to prove to anyone. Free your mind, live your life. What’s truly yours will find you in due time. Stay blessed.

    heaven? Have you ever lied, stolen used God’s name as a curse word (O-M-G)? According to God’s law, you’re guilty,ignorance will not be an excuse… But wait, God loves you, he made a way out. God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16 Please think about your eternal life, believe and repent, even after rapture you can be saved. Love Y’all

    Aw poor shauna

  19. Jowers Kids on May 12, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    she is so short

  20. Shalaine Moeller on May 12, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Omg i love Shauna

  21. jcfreak2007 on May 12, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Someone needs to tell her about Pete Mozingo and his mom’s relationship because his mom is a Dwarf genetically and Pete is like 6’2" and they have the most loving and caring relationship with each other!

  22. Steven Fuller on May 12, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    She’s got big DISNEY style eyes 👀🥰

  23. Simple Tricks & Nonsense on May 12, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Shauna doesn’t need to worry about having kids. She can adopt. I’m curious why she hasn’t gotten an agent and gone out for movies or shows. Someone her size who is an adult and would remain looking like a child means she could play a child and the production wouldn’t have to worry about her aging out. She could do stunt work for children. She could play creatures, aliens, monsters and other extraordinary beings because of her size. Instead of getting tattoos and wishing she was like everyone else she could be doing things everyone else can’t do.

  24. jerri lehane on May 12, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    I’m glad she’s getting medical attention & hope she can get treatment for the migranes.

  25. Pallavisree Tambraparni on May 12, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    wow. shawna is a strong, beautiful, articulate little girl and she will grow up to be a very strong woman. Any man who gets her hand in marriage when she grows up, will be one lucky person to have her in his life.

  26. Somewhere Upthere on May 12, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Size makes ZERO difference when it comes to roles people have in a family. Trust me. My mom was tiny, but her presence was commanding. It’s all attitude and confidence.

  27. BndOvrBby on May 12, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    This girl is an absolute trooper not letting life hit her like a sack of bricks and staying strong

  28. kristine orsini on May 12, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    She needs to be an undercover agent.

  29. janice thomas on May 12, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    how old are you Shauna? not trying to be mean…

  30. lili su on May 12, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    I love how the the doctor forgot Shauna is a woman and then quickly remembered🤣

  31. Steven Fuller on May 12, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    She should be an actress. People with unique characteristics play some of the most memorable roles.

  32. Nathalie Persaud on May 12, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    I will be hard for her to find a boyfriend.i mean she is lovely.but she has the body of a child even if the mind of an adult

  33. T. Le on May 12, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    If the growth hormones were working, then why stop? She would’ve had a growth spurt along with puberty.

  34. Brandon Davis on May 12, 2022 at 8:16 pm


  35. Mins on May 12, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    She’s so interesting to watch, she’s so entertaining!

  36. SuperPeachWorld on May 12, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Awe! This doctor almost cried at the end. You could see tears forming when she talk so kindly & respectful of this young woman. What a sweet, caring doctor she is you don’t see doctor like this anymore.

  37. Amanda Hunter on May 12, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    I feel like many things are considered miracles

  38. Princess A. on May 12, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Jesus loves all repent for your sins ❤️🙏🏾

  39. Elijah Garcia on May 12, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Jesus is with everyone

  40. Emily Lemieux on May 12, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    So she needs to meet the little people organization and find boyfriend there. Even her voice is a little person. She needs too accept she is a dwarf.

  41. Andy 🌸 on May 12, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I know her dating life is rough 😫

  42. Corrine Corinne Karina on May 12, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    She’s so cute 😍

  43. ggolds5 on May 12, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    This poor mother. It’s bad enough to worry about your children when they’re born healthy, but this is such a cruel life for a mother to always have to wonder when that next phone call isn’t about how her day at work is, but that her headaches lead to an MRI that shows another tumor. Just unbearable and unfair.

  44. Zahraa on May 12, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Honestly, I understand where Shauna’s parents were coming from with the growth hormones. I have cerebral palsy and daily stretching is strongly recommended to keep muscles loose and enable the person to maintain a good range of motion in the legs. However, stretching is very painful for someone who has CP because spasticity also plays a factor so the muscles will tighten involuntarily against any attempt to stretch. My parents never forced stretching on me but I went through phases where I would do it for some type of reward. I do wish they had me establish a daily routine though as I would know how to better manage and treat my symptoms as well as maybe have more function as an adult. At the same time, I cannot imagine being made to be in pain daily against my will and having my parents be the ones causing that pain. It certainly would’ve harmed our relationship in the short-term, but maybe I would’ve gotten used to it or tolerated it after some time – I really don’t know. My point is the issue is not as black and white as it seems, and instead of criticizing the parents for decisions they can’t change now, maybe practice a bit more empathy and hope that Shauna will now take better care of herself as an adult with the resources available to her.

    I swear 3’11 is not 8 year old that’s 6 years old I’m 8 and 4’8

  46. TheGreatGazoo on May 12, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    The sickoes of the world would make her the world’s richest adult film star if she ever chose that line of work. I kinda feel bad for her when it comes to dating because i can’t imagine how hard it is to find a good man. Men either feel like (or are worried others will think) hes messing with a child…or she will have to deal with men that want her because she does look like a child. Its really to bad because the wife and i watch the show and she really is a bright, thoughtful, kind caring and beautiful WOMAN once you get used to her young appearance. I wish her all the best.

  47. Liyah's Life on May 12, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Definitely praying for you her ! She should look into the alkaline diet to help with her brain health! Reminder: Jesus loves you all so much 🦋

  48. Tonxs FamilyVlogs on May 12, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    I’ve seen people with dwarfism carry children

  49. 龚德塋Megan Kong on May 12, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Shauna you are so pretty!

  50. Keeph on May 12, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    The guy that would dates her in the future, would probably mostly definitely be called a p*do
