Rare breeds take the world for themselves. This is not just a mere statement, it is a matter of fact!
The cooing smile of Byron Baxter is enough to melt one’s heart much more is his lovely baby chatters and wide eyed face. But as perfectly endearing as the 3-year-old boy is, he is battling a rare condition that threatens to break him on the inside till there is nothing left.
Osteogenesis Imperfecta, this is what Byron is contending with even as a little child. Based on the definition of a medical dictionary, Osteogenesis imperfecta is an inherited condition marked by abnormally brittle bones that are subject to fracture.
What this means is that the affected victim’s bones begin to break and experience fracture at a fast rate for no obvious reason.
Byron who is based in the USA came to the knowledge of many people around the world through the inventiveness of his parents who began sharing his journey and experiences on Instagram and other social media outlets.
Also, the brave parents who have stood out as examples of resilience started a GoFundme project for their amazing kid just so he could get a chance to have a better life. So far, about $90, 000 has been raised in two months of opening the page.
