A young boy called Noah was born.
At birth, Noah was born completely paralysed from the waist down and with just 3% of his brain.
The reason for paralysis and the reduced brain mass was due to Spina Bifida.
Spina Bifida is a birth defect which causes there to be a gap in the spine which allows fluid to enter into the spinal column and the brain.
Due to the severe nature of his condition, he was given a terrible prognosis by the medical community.
Unperturbed, his family dedicated their waking hours to ensure he had as varied experience as possible.
Playing games with him, talking to him and sharing their love.
Over time, he started to defy the odds.
He started communicating, playing and interacting with the world.
Then age 3, his brain was once again scanned...
This time, his brain showed 85% mass.
