Microhydranencephalic Jaxon defies probabilities of his early death

Microhydranencephalic Jaxon defies probabilities of his early death

We encounter very few medical miracles even at this age. One of those rare miracles is the living one year old Jaxon Strong. Doctors had told that Jaxon would not live or even take birth as a significant part of his skull is missing. Twenty seven year old Brittany and Brandon Buell of thirty were told by the doctors that their son had a very rare malfunction of the brain called the Microhydranencephaly. It is such a rare disease that one out of four thousand eight hundred and fifty nine babies in the United States are born with this malfunction annually but most of them do not survive and die no later as they take birth.

Baby Jaxon was born with most of his skull and brain missing. Even their parents were told to abort the child when this was found. But they did not. They decided to give birth to it even though they had a lot of fear and tension in heart. The baby defied all the probabilities of his congenital death and took birth. Doctors diagnosed him of having anencephaly which is a neural tube defect while birth and the child is born devoid of a few parts of the brain and skull.

Nevertheless, baby Jaxon lives on. The colleagues of Brandon had set up a GoFundME page at the time of Jaxon’s birth to aid the family with the expensive medication and the other extra prices. Over fifty five thousand dollars has been raised by one thousand one hundred and eighty five donors since then. The support is till pouring in.

The couple had never dreamed that this would happen even though they have the fear to lose Jaxon still in their mind. But the overwhelming support and donations keeps their motivation going on in an optimistic path.
