She had feeding problems and gastric reflux. At 5
months she was hospitalised in high dependency with
a collapsed lung. All caused by a common cold. Then
we noticed her eyes were wobbling (Nystagmus)
Penny was diagnosed at two years old with
Trichothiodystophy, Cockaynes Syndrome and XPD.
She’s registered visually impaired, can’t walk or
talk, has a substantial hole in her heart, curvature
of the spine and failure to thrive.
Despite all her challenges Penny is the happiest
little girl with the biggest smile and most
infectious giggle. She spread her joy and happiness
to everyone she meets ?
