New Delhi: Baby Jaxon Buell was born with severe disabilities – a large part of his skull and brain were missing. But, the resilient little man has defied all odds and survived to celebrate his first birthday in August.
Jaxon, now 13 months old, was recently diagnosed with microhydranencephaly, a severe brain malformation for which there is no known cure after months of tests and misdiagnoses.
His parents Brandon and Brittany Buell were told by doctors that their son wouldn’t live past a few weeks. But, the boy is now miraculously teething and is saying hello to them.
