Maddie Lane Brewer is an angel on earth. A happy baby of 18 months, she delights everyone she sees. Maddie was diagnosed in July with Angelman Syndrome (AS).
Angelman Syndrome (AS) is a neuro-genetic disorder that occurs in one in 15,000 live births, says the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST) website. AS is often misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy or autism. Characteristics of the disorder include developmental delay, lack of speech, seizures, and walking and balance disorders. Individuals with Angelman Syndrome will require life-long care.
