Meet Jacob, a beautiful little boy. Jacob's Mum tells his story...
"Jacob has a very rare condition known as Gm1 Gangliosidosis, type 1. It is the most debilitating form of the degenerative condition and results from genetic coding not allowing for production of beta-galactosidase enzyme essential for neurological functioning. As time goes by, the organs in the body start to fail."
"Jacob was only diagnosed on the 21st of august, he is currently on epilepsy medications to control his fits. There is no treatment or cure for Jacob. His life expectancy is 2 years. He is 16 months."
"Jacob loves spending time with his parents, going to different activities. He also loves spending time in his own sensory corner that his mummy built for him at home. Jacob needs to be kept confortable, so he does spend his day cuddling with his mummy, going for walk in his buggy. His favourite thing is his sensory bubble light."
"It does mean the world to us having these photographs as it is a lasting memory of 3 of us together"
