Rae was also asked how old he was when he tried to get a tattoo. He was even asked about his age when he tried to register to be a member of a gym.
Rae’s mother, Patricia Schrankel, also spoke in the documentary about the heartbreaking time when her daughter developed brain cancer as an infant. “Shauna was six months old when we found out she had brain cancer,” said Patty, as she is affectionately known.
“I feel, I think almost guilty, that he will have to go through this for the rest of his life, so all I can do is protect him,” added Patty.
Rae explains what happens after undergoing chemotherapy, and how this affects her growth. “My pituitary gland is barely active due to chemotherapy. The doctor said I’m done growing. My bones are fused together, and I’m 3 feet and 10 inches tall,” she says.
She says she is single, and tends to attract the wrong kind of men. “I attract jerks and idiots. It’s scary to put myself out there, but you have to take risks to find happiness,” said Rae.
