Child Interests

Finnan loves all colours that are bright and bold!


Finnan suffers from an rare and incurable metabolic disease called PMM2-CDG. He is one of about 700 patients in the world. He missed many first milestones, such as holding his head up, rolling over and sitting, and he was diagnosed just after his first birthday.
He has problems with balance and his body is ataxic, meaning that he is hypermobile and his core is not strong enough for him to walk unaided. He is very smart, and has a cheeky, fun personality.
