The little boy uses a wheelchair to get around. He is incredibly intelligent and loves studying science and learning about the solar system.
His life is strangely ordinary, which is surprising, considering doctors didn’t even expect Noah to survive after he was born.
Further genetic testing revealed that Noah suffered from two rare genetic disorders:
Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome, further complicating the situation. Doctors suggested Michelle consider terminating the pregnancy, fearing the child could be stillborn.
Michelle was faced with a difficult decision as genetic testing revealed both Edwards syndrome and Patau syndrome, rare genetic disorders with low chances of survival.
Doctors recommended terminating the pregnancy, believing that the child could be stillborn, and if it survived, it would face extremely serious physical and intellectual challenges.
Michelle and her husband Rob chose to continue the pregnancy, holding out hope for a miracle that would exceed their wildest dreams. And this miracle really happened.
Scans revealed that after a tumor was present in his skull, only 2% of Noah’s brain remained. When he was seven weeks old, an operation was performed to close the spinal cord malformation and a shunt was placed in his head to control the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.
To date, Noah has had 11 surgeries with many more to come, but he has already exceeded everyone’s expectations in every way!
