Chandler Crews has a passion for advocacy and social media. Born with the most common form of dwarfism, achondroplasia, she has been publicly sharing her journey for over a decade, gaining her a major online presence.
In 2010, she made the decision to undergo a series of limb lengthening surgeries. In a span of just four years, Chandler went from standing at 3’10” to over a foot taller at 4’11”.
This journey has led her to her career as a patient advocate, public speaker and communications professional. Today, she is the founder and president of The Chandler Project, a nonprofit patient-focused organization dedicated to providing education and resources on the latest research and development in pharmaceutical advancements and surgical treatment options for those affected by achondroplasia.
