LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One little girl makes a big impact on the internet with her sweet singing of the "Star Spangled Banner."

Three-year-old Grace Anna Rodgers was diagnosed with a form of dwarfism called Conradi-Hunnermann.

The rare disease stunts her growth and causes her legs to be uneven.

Grace has been told by doctors that she will never walk and would probably be deaf, but proved her doctors wrong.

Grace is from Liberty, KY and is intellectually on track but cannot walk and has poor eyesight.

Despite the disease she suffers from, Grace is a sensation and has overcome many obstacles regarding her health.

Cornadi-Hunnermann is diagnosed in about on out of 400,000 infants when they are born, and some aren't as lucky as Grace.

The disease is caused by an extra x-linked dominant trait and and is more common in girls that boys; boys who are diagnosed don't usually survive.
