Sometimes we’re inflicted with various illnesses. Some of them are major, and some of them are easily curable.
Having a disease makes you suffer, but the people around you go through the same ordeal as much as you do.
In case of Brooke Greenberg, the whole thing is different.
The Unique Case of Syndrome X
Brooke was born back in 1993 in Baltimore.
She was a bit frail with anterior hip dislocation.
The doctors managed to cure it surgically, and the baby looked normal to both practitioners and parents.
But deep down, she had been inflicted with the most bizarre condition anyone could ever see.
Throughout her first six years, Brooke suffered from various medical emergencies: from strokes, comas to stomach ulcers.
But the thing that baffled everyone is that, little Brooke, as she started to grow in age, her body and mind didn’t seem to keep up.
As you can see from the picture, she looked like an infant at the age of twenty!
The doctors identified her illness as Syndrome X, which is considered “developmental delay.”
The End of a Unique Life Story
On October, 2013, little Brooke died from Bronchomalacia, which is a condition that occurs in children that makes it harder for them to breath.
She died at the same hospital she was born in, marking an end of one incredible life story.
