Jaxon was born with Microhydranencephaly, which is an extreme malformation of the brain.
The condition can cause microcephaly and scalp rugae – which mean the head can be smaller than normal and the scalp ridged – but that doesn’t stop Jaxon looking 100 per cent adorable.
Jaxon needs constant care because his development is extremely delayed, but he’s already smashed accomplishments that doctors predicted he never could and he’s just reached his first birthday, which felt like a real milestone.
Jaxon’s family said: ‘His perseverance and strength already shown is why we are calling his inspirational story, “Jaxon Strong”.
‘Ultimately, Jaxon will need a miracle long-term. We continue to ask for support and prayers, as it is a blessing that his Mom continues to stay home with him for constant care.’
Because mum Brittany had to give up her career to care for her son around the clock and the expensive medical bills, Jaxon’s family have started a crowdfunding page to help out, you can visit it here.
They added: ‘His story has still spread around the world in ways that we never dreamed of or planned. So, with that, all we can say is “thank you,” although that will never be enough to explain what all of your support has meant to our family.
‘We simply continue to ask to keep sharing his story which we know is still just getting started! #JaxonStrong.’
You heard them, what are you waiting for, get sharing.
