Not because his appetite is always wasted when he sees food. However, this white boy did suffer from a rare syndrome that made him always feel hungry. This strange syndrome is called Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). This syndrome made Geezer never realize that what he was eating was enough. This condition affects only one in about 15 births in the UK each year.
This syndrome makes sufferers obsessed with food, obsessions like this usually start before the child is 6 years old. In addition to never feeling full, PWS sufferers are usually characterized by mental retardation. Physical and emotional development also tends to be slow. Likewise with Geezer, since birth Geezer’s condition was classified as less ‘normal’. This boy had to undergo intensive care and eat from an infusion tube for 10 days. After that, the doctor only allowed Gezzer to be brought home.
However, when Gezzer was three weeks old, doctors diagnosed this poor boy with PWS. His parents then took Geezer to the doctor because his body was not responsive to stimuli. Geezer’s parents worry that their son has autism. However, the reality they had to accept was even more painful.
Tragically, doctors never know why this happened. Doctors even diagnosed that Geezer only had a 50 percent chance of survival. PWS is said to be a genetic disease, but in most cases it is found that the disease is not “hereditary” hereditary but just happens randomly.
Now Geezer is growing like a normal toddler, but unfortunately, even though he is almost two years old, this toddler cannot pronounce his first sentence, even now Geezer is just learning to crawl. Both of Geezer’s parents, Michelle Sargeant and Craig Buxton, are very worried about the child’s development, because they know that the little hero will not be able to live independently because he must always be ‘protected’ from all food by his parents.
According to the experience of parents who have children suffering from PWS admit that they must always ‘secure’ their sons / daughters from the reach of food. But even so they will continue to do whatever it takes to get it. In fact, it is reported that PWS sufferers can bite themselves to death due to their intense appetite for food. Michelle herself admits that she really has to go the extra mile to control the food that is put into the mouth of the son, a little carelessness would be dangerous. Because in the previous incident, he had experienced a son and even ate dog biscuits, soap and plaster on the walls. Until now, Michelle could only surrender to the situation and hope for God’s miracle with the growth and development of her son.
