Biography

George is 7. He was diagnosed with 22q Deletion syndrome age 5 and a half, after a long battle with health professionals.

George was born a happy and healthy baby but began to be extremely fussy within days of being born. He wouldn’t settle, hardly slept or fed. He was changed onto different milk almost weekly until being prescribed extra calorie milk.

George was hospitalised age 4 months with bronchiolitis which was the beginning of his journey. He suffered with almost continuous chest and ear infections which has resulted in hearing loss and the use of long term antibiotics.

George has virtually no speech and over the years this was blamed on his hearing problems until after his diagnosis a routine referral was made to the cleft team to check his palate. After a video fluoroscopy he was diagnosed with a cleft palate and had surgery in April 2017. The surgery was horrendous - George refused to eat, drink or take meds post surgery and became severely dehydrated which could have been fatal. Unfortunately it appears the surgery has not been successful and George’s speech is still unclear.

George was also diagnosed with Autism in October 2017 which explains a lot of his sensory difficulties.

Despite all George’s difficulties he is such a happy boy who has a wicked sense of humour and can make anyone laugh. He loves animals and playing with superhero figures. He is the light of our lives!
