A Sunderland mum, desperate to save her child’s life, is trying all ways out to raise fund of £580,000, so that her son could take part in a trial treatment at Manchester Children's Hospital.
The amount is required to purchase a trial drug, which might help preventing the two-year-old toddler going senile. Jack Baird, at the age of 16 months was diagnosed with the extremely rare Sanfilippo disease, and his mother, Gemma while speaking to a local newspaper said that she was aware about his illness, since last few months.
Sanfilippo is a generic condition that destroys the brain functioning and physical ability of an individual. And in severe cases, even the life of a patient comes at risk. In case of Jack, the circumstances were quite similar. Doctors told Gemma that he is likely to have dementia in coming months and surviving till teenage years looks quite impossible.
Jack when born was normal, but with his growing age, his mother Gemma started noticing some uncommon symptoms. Like the way he used to sleep was different from general sleeping pattern. He most of the times used to had bowel problems and his nose was always running.
Though antibiotics were being given to him to treat his illness but that was all temporary. Later he was diagnosed with an enlarged head.
