Thank you for visiting Paxton's page! This sweet boy was diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) at 2 weeks old. PWS is a rare, non-hereditary genetic disorder that encompasses a wide range of medical and developmental issues.
There are many challenges associated with PWS, including physical and cognitive disabilities, but the most challenging symptom those with PWS face is chronic hunger. PWS tricks the brain into thinking the body is starving…all the time. There is no cure, but current research efforts give us HOPE!
Our prayer is for Paxton to live life full, not just in his belly, but in all aspects of life. That's why they are fundraising for The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research. We love FPWR because they are urgently working to find a cure. Paxton's future depends on this important research.
100% funds raised will be used to advance PWS research through the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research. You can learn more about PWS and the research that is underway at http://www.fpwr.org/.
