I Am Shauna Rae: Who Is Shauna Rae?
Shaun was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 6 months and had to undergo chemotherapy, which stopped her pituitary gland from working properly. This meant that her growth was stunted and he ended up growing to just three metres and ten inches. In her TLC broadcast, she explains how people often tell her that children are not welcome when she goes to bars, gyms and tattoo parlours. Her mother also says in the trailer that she feels guilty that her daughter has to deal with these difficulties forever.
She is currently single, but is getting into the dating scene, and has even experienced a blind date. When she told her date how old she was, she thought she was being played. Then, when she realized she was telling the truth, they had a great date and went to throw the axe. Although he has had some trouble with dating in the past, because she says she attracts a lot of “creeps a**holes, and idiots.”
In the series, her parents also plan to set up an outhouse for him, but it is debatable whether this will give him the independence she needs. Many of her friends believe she is ready to fly the nest and get her own home, but her parents prefer to keep a closer eye on him for security reasons.
I’m Shauna Rae follows a 22 year old who behaves like most other people in her early 20s, she dates, vapes and drinks. While the difference is that Shauna Rae is trapped in a child’s body, which makes navigating life much more difficult, this series gives insight into her daily struggles. The series concludes, “Diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, Shauna’s treatment allowed for remission, but resulted in a side effect no one predicted: she stopped growing.”
