Coordinated care for unstoppable Kemiyah

A diagnosis of achondroplasia shortly after birth, and a team to help Kemiyah thrive

Before Kemiyah Robinson’s birth at VCU Medical Center, her grandmother and legal guardian, Regina Holmes, had done her research and selected Dr. Tiffany Kimbrough as Kemiyah’s pediatrician. A few weeks later, she learned they would come to know many other experts at CHoR as well.

Our genetics team diagnosed Kemiyah with achondroplasia, a bone growth disorder and the most common form of short-limbed dwarfism, when she was just 4 weeks old. Since then, Regina has relied on Dr. Kimbrough to help connect Kemiyah with the right specialists at the right time.
