Overcoming Obstacles

JaxThe first six weeks of Jax’s life were characterized by weight loss and struggle. Born in Jamaica, his family felt helpless watching Jax struggle as they exhausted the medical resources available to them and still didn’t have any answers as to why Jax wasn’t healthy. After going to Miami for additional medical support, they finally got a diagnosis —CHARGE syndrome. They were told Jax would likely never be able to eat by mouth, walk, or learn. Now Jax is 3 years old, eating everything in sight, signing like crazy (including “I love you” for the first time recently!), walking independently, and doing all the happy kid things!

Jax and his family have hurdled over so many obstacles — we can’t wait to see what Jax continues to accomplish!
