– This boy was born with half skull missing and fights for his life every day

– The child has almost 400,000 followers on Facebook and lovely family who takes care of him
Jaxon Buell suffers from a rare brain malfunction called Microhydranencephaly, from which most children die before or shortly after birth.
The parents were told to abort the fetus when the condition was discovered, but refused to do so.
That’s what Jaxon’s father Brandon told Metro.co.uk: “He is doing very well, he is very comfortable and very happy. He’s smiling all the time, he laughs, he’s working on different things, like how to keep his head upright. He still has his struggles where he throws up, he still has several seizures several times a day, he’s still on the smaller side at 13 pounds but he’s certainly developing.”
Jaxon has his own Facebook page with almost 400,000 followers. You can see in the post below how he spent his second birthday despite all the troubles
The couple, who are from Florida, are devout Christians and say their strength and hope for their son has been fuelled by their faith.
The proud father said: “Every day we have with Jaxon is a blessing. If and when that day happens and we no longer have Jaxon with us, it’ll certainly be an extremely tough day like it would be for any parent who has to say goodbye to their child far too early.”
