Tia's mother Selena revealed that her daughter is suffering from a rare condition known as erythropoietic protoporphyria. Less than 400 people in the country are affected by this condition which makes the victim allergic to sun rays.

Selena said that she first noticed the problem when Tia was one year old. However she revealed that her daughter has taken it into stride. "She doesn't whinge when I tell her she has come inside because she's had too much sun. She's been so brave, even when she cries at night. She's our little sunshine", she said.
