15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Rare

This is Maggie. She has two rare chromosome duplications, one of which she's the only child on record to have. This photo captures not only her vulnerability, but also the magnitude of the science for which we are so grateful. A little girl and her "Gigi" already way too familiar with hospitals and doctors offices than any child should be. Taken with an LG G5.

This photo is the Readers' Choice winner of our 15th Annual Photo Contest. See all 60 finalists here.
