Brandon and Brittany Buell never considered aborting their baby, even though their doctor told them that things did not look good, with the baby’s head not developing.
Even though the doctor said that Jaxon would most likely not survive, Brandon got a premonition. “Something inside me, almost like it was coming from Jaxon (their baby), was telling me ‘Don’t give up on me.’”
#3 He Survived
In August of 2014, baby Jaxon made it in to this world, born with Lissencephaly, a rare disorder that causes the baby’s head and brain to be mishaped. Most babies who do survive long enough in the womb to be born, do not live until adulthood.
With the support of their families and friends, they are living one day at a time. The couple has a GoFundMe page set up as well as a FaceBook page for Jaxon.
Jaxon has been an inspiration to many. His father Brandon said, “As a child he can’t choose for himself. It’s up to the parents to give their child a chance just to make it.”
