A Trisomy 18 Journey

Meet Lachlan

Today I am pleased to introduce you to 2 and a half year old Lachlan! Lachlan has the mosaic form of Trisomy 18. This means that some of his cells have three copies of the 18th chromosome and some have two. Mosaic trisomy 18 occurs in less than 5% of t18 cases.
Lachlan lives with his family in Australia. He is a much loved little guy! He has a heart condition but is doing great without surgery. He received his g-tube for feedings a few months ago and has adjusted well to his new tube and his new blenderized diet. To read more about Lachlan and see his adorable photos, please visit his blog "Lachlan's Australian Trisomy 18 Journey."
