The Big 5

Cancer, Autism, Asthma, Obesity, and Diabetes -- these five diseases or conditions are the ones that have Charlotte parents the most concerned. We went straight to top local physicians to find out the statistics, the signs, and what questions to ask. Then we found people who are doing something about it. Finally, we sat down with two local parents -- one who has two autistic children and another whose son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age three -- to hear their equal parts sad and inspiring stories
