Now this is a kind of “Toddlers & Tiaras” I´d watch. Abbey Curran, Miss Iowa 2008, started the MISS YOU CAN DO IT pageant in 2004 to offer girls with special needs the opportunity to have a moment in the spotlight, similar to Curran’s own struggle to become the the first woman with disabilities to compete in the Miss USA Pageant in 2008. MISS YOU CAN DO IT tells Curran’s story and follows eight heroic young girls with physical and mental disabilities as they participate in the pageant when it debuts MONDAY, JUNE 24 (9:00-10:15 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

MISS YOU CAN DO IT highlights the extraordinary
work Curran is doing with the pageant she founded, celebrating the heroism of the parents and families who openly describe how the heartbreak of learning that their child was different quickly gave way to loving patience, dedication and a new appreciation for the joys and challenges of raising a child with special needs. Pageant volunteer Jan Selman adds, “Miss You Can Do It is not about what’s wrong with these girls. It’s about celebrating what’s right with them.”
Catch MISS YOU CAN DO IT on JUNE 24 at 9:00pm, only on HBO.
