Kyle Maynard has great friends and is quite the ladies man. Kyle is also a champion wrestler who has penned a New York Times bestseller, "No Excuses" - all this despite the fact that his arms end at his elbows and his legs end at his knees. Kyle was born with a condition known as congenital amputation but that hasn't stopped him from achieving more in his 25 years than most people do in a lifetime.

Stacey Herald reveals to E! what it's been like to survive 36 years with osteogenesis imperfecta, a disorder that often leads to early death. Stacey's "brittle bone" condition stunted her growth. She stands at barely 3 feet tall and should never have been able to bear children. "[The doctor] told me, 'it's physically impossible.' She laid me down on a table and measured me and said, 'There is just no room for a little baby to grow.' Stacey was determined to have a family, and is now the proud mother of three children. "It's an absolute miracle that my children are even here," she tells E!. Stacey is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the "World's Smallest Mom".

5 year-old Lorelei Sellars was a normal apple-cheeked toddler until a mysterious condition caused all the fat in her body to disappear, seemingly overnight. 13 year-old Christopher Cobun was born with his heart outside his chest, but leads a remarkably normal life. 16 year-old Patrick Ivison was told he would never walk again after a car accident left him paralyzed. Patrick now surfs and is determined to walk at his High School graduation.

Along with their medical teams, Kyle, Stacey, Lorelei, Christopher, Patrick, and 3 other remarkable patients share their headline-making stories with E!. Be sure to tune-in on January 12th at 10:00 PM for the premiere of this awe-inspiring special.
