little soldier Lucas is 8yrs 8mths old. At 5 months old he was diagnosed with a rare genetic brain disorder called Lissencephaly (which means 'smooth brain'), and Microcephaly. His mummy was told at that time that it was life limiting and very unlikely that he would live past 2/3 years of age.
His condition means he suffers with seizures everyday and night, and he is severely disabled and unable to walk or talk and is totally reliant on his amazing mummy. He suffers with repeated chest infections which make him very poorly. Yet through all of this mummy's little man has shown such strength and willpower and against the odds he is still here with his family, he goes to school when he is well enough, and he is the absolute light of his mummy's life. Although non verbal his facial expressions leave you in no doubt of his mood. He rarely smiles but when he does it makes his mummy's heart sing!
Special thanks to our photography Liz who captured Lucas and his mummy on their recent photoshoot.
