Hello Everyone! Feb. 15 is International Angelman Day. I am sure most of you know that my son, Scotty has Angelman Syndrome. Part of chromosome 15 he received from me is deleted. My son cannot speak. Scotty has seizures. He has severe reflux, chronic constipation, asthma, scoliosis, suffers from headaches, back pain, hip pain, he has chronic upper respiratory infections, his airway often closes when he gets a cold, his walking is off balance and he often falls, he has jerky movements, has difficulty feeding himself, and yet he smiles.
Angelman Syndrome is a devastating disorder. Look past the beautiful face and the obvious love in his eyes and you just might see the struggle.
There is nobody in this world that can take the hope away from me. The hope for a cure. The hope that my son will talk and be seizure free one day. Please share this blog post and spread awareness for Angelman Syndrome. Help us find and fund a cure. Go to cureangelman.org and donate 15.00. Do it for Scotty and all other people struggling with AS.
Learn more about this disorder go to cureangelman.org.
I will be celebrating each day my son’s life, his determination, his great beautiful spirit of joy and love, and I will celebrate the hope and faith that there will be a cure in his lifetime.
