Erin is a 17-year-old student at Hasbrouck Heights High School in New Jersey. She has a genetic disorder known as brittle bond disease, and uses a wheelchair. In her 17 years, Erin has had over 100 bone fractures and 10 surgeries.
Four years ago, Erin was matched with her first service dog, Gauge, a 6-year-old golden retriever.
So, the school rewrote some of the play just for Gauge - since he was a little larger than the basket-fitting version of Toto.
But Erin's mom, Michelle, always saw her daughter as a star.
"She makes me a better person," Michelle said, adding "the only limits you set are the one you set upon yourself."
