Chloe was diagnosed at birth via a blood test. She was found to have a deletion of a chromosome and resulted in her being diagnosed with the rare syndrome, Smith-Magenis.
She then had various tests which have resulted in her being diagnosed with further complications such as a duplex kidney, mass in her brain, larygomalacia, pulmonary stenosis and a hole in her heart. Due to a weakened immune system, she is also faced with recurrent ear, chest, urine and skin infections. These coming months are also going to tough for her as she is due to undergo various anaesthetics for surgeries and testing. She is due to have tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, as well as grommets inserted, a hernia removed, a lump on her lip removed, imaging on her spine to test the degree of her scoliosis and an EEG done as she is displaying seizure activity. Her syndrome also means she has severe sleep disturbances due to an inverted cicadian rhythm, this can have a big impact on her already stressful behaviours. She has regular meltdowns and has displayed extreme self injurious behaviours.
Despite all this she is the most loving, caring, affection and smiley little girl. She has such an endearing personality and is loved by everyone she meets.
