Noah was born with only 2% of his brain and had a little chance of surviving. Not only this, he also had spina bifida. His parents were told multiple times to terminate the pregnancy but they decided to give their son a chance to live.
Six-year-old Noah was born with only 2 percent of his brain and had very little chance of surviving. Doctors told his parents to terminate the pregnancy five times but his parents were determined to give their son a chance to live. Luckily, their choice turned out to be the right one and Noah defied all odds. Now Noah can do all those things that his doctors thought he wouldn't be able to do such as talking, smiling, seeing, and hearing. This is only the beginning for Noah and his amazing family who have been over to Australia to discuss a treatment called 'neurophysics'. But Noah is too young for this treatment as of yet so his family and the doctors are waiting for him to be old enough to undergo the treatment.
Noah had developed almost no brain matter in the womb due to which his parents were advised by the doctors to terminate the pregnancy - five times. Not only this, but he also had spina bifida, giving him very little chance of surviving.
"If younger people were offered that choice, they may have felt pressured into taking it," explained Rob, who also has two daughters with Shelley.
"But because we're older parents, we know our own mind and we're positive people. So we wanted to give Noah the chance of life."
"Even if his brain had been so squashed up, he'd be severely mentally disabled because of all that damage and look at him - he's as bright as a button," said Rob.
Noah has defied all the odds and is turning out to be a bright kid. But this is only the beginning for the family, who have been over to Australia to discuss a treatment called 'neurophysics', which is a mixture of physiotherapy and cognitive exercises.
