    I loved the pictures they were great, and also I loved the statistics that you gave. One thing I noticed that was missing is what I could do to help with stickler's syndrom. But I really liked your glog a lot.

    I enjoyed reading this glog. Your visuals were great and the video was very informative. I also read about Graham's story and it really did highlight how Stickler Syndrome is difficult to diagnose. I really liked your glog because it taught me about a condition which I never really knew much about.
