I remember in the late 80s/early 90s there was a story about two girls that were allergic to the sun. Anyone know what happened to them?

I remember reading about them.  I googled, but it just brought up a bunch of other kids with the allergy!  How crazy and sad for these poor kids!  If you find anything, link it, I'd like to know too.  I'll link if I find anything.

I will. I remember there was a 20/20 type show with them and a magazine article. I think we read it in class or something. I hope they were able to live productive lives. If I do find an update I will post :)

Their names were Jamie and Sherry Harrison. According to a review of the movie made about their life "Children of the Dark" from 1994, as of a year ago they were still alive & still living in the dark.

I don't know what happened to them but they used to live a few towns over from where I lived. I remember seeing them on 20/20.
