Melorheostosis: A rare and painful bone disease

Griffin O'Neal remembers the day his mother walked in on him while he was playing with his plastic motorcycle: He was jumping it off a large bump that had grown on his left shin. Just 6 years old, O'Neal thought the bump was a result of the swift kicks a girl he had a crush on was doling out.
His mother, Joanna Cook Moore, thought otherwise.
"My mother looked down and said, 'Well what, Lord Jesus, is that?' " recalls O'Neal, the 43-year-old son of actor Ryan O'Neal and brother of Tatum O'Neal.
