Discovery Communications-owned network TLC is slated to premiere the rare medical condition series Two in a Million (pictured) next month.

Each episode of the Raw-produced series will follow the journey of two individuals who share the same unusual medical disorder as they spend one week together to share their experiences and visit with world-renowned doctors to find answers.

Featured in the program are Giovanni and Owen, who suffer from Schwartz Jampel disease which causes permanently contracted muscles, respiratory issues and fixed joints; Bobbi and Kenny, who suffer from lamellar ichthyosis, a skin disorder that causes scaling of the skin; Tiffany and Destiny, battling brittle bone disease, or osteogenesis imperfect; and Austin and Elena, who have Goldenhar syndrome, a rare congenital disease in which development of the ear, nose, soft palate, lip and jaw can be incomplete.

Two in a Million airs on TLC on April 6 at 10 p.m. EST/PST
