As anyone who follows our blog will know, we have always been massive supporters of HugsForNoah… Noah’s mummy was a friend of ours way before her pregnancy with Noah so we have followed this journey from the very beginning.
Little Noah was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and was not expected to survive birth as the medical professions thought his illness too severe and his parents were advised to plan his funeral while Noah was still in the womb. Noah has exceeded all expectations and is now four years old and continues to amaze everyone with his progress.
His story has been recorded by Mark Three Media to show the advances his health has made, along with the intensive work his family put in to make his life the best it can possibly be. The documentary will follow every day life in Noah’s family along with a few surprises along the way.
I don’t know about YOU but WE cannot wait to see Noah on television… he is a true miracle baby, an inspirational little boy who is growing into an amazing and intelligent young man who is a pleasure to have in our lives.
Noah has an amazing family and support network, without whom he would not be the fantastic little boy he is. Noah we love you very very much❤
📺 Set your tv recorders to RECORD “Extraordinary People: The Boy With No Brain” on Channel 5 at 10:00pm on Tuesday 11th October 2016 to make sure you don’t miss this fantastic programme showing Noah’s resilience and amazing progress!!! 📺
Of course, the haters are going to hate… the family have already received some very nasty and uncalled for messages from people who ‘claim’ to understand what they are going through. People who claim that the television programme has been inaccurately named – the name “Extraordinary People: The Boy With No Brain” was NOT chosen by the family.
The point of Noah’s documentary is to outline the complexity of his health problems, the fantastic development he continues to make each day and everything his family does to help him to lead the best possible life. Noah was born with only 2% of his brain showing on hospital scans and in July 2015 an MRI scan showed is brain had developed to almost ‘normal’ which is a remarkable progression.
Even before the programme has been aired, the family have been accused of scaremongering which is exactly the opposite of what the programme is intended to do… the programme (which has not yet been aired, and I have not yet seen) will show the story of Noah’s life with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, explaining that prior to Noah’s birth his family were advised that he would not survive, they were advised by medical professionals that if their son did survive he would be severely disabled however Noah goes on to inspire and amaze both his family, friends and the medical professionals with the progress he continues to make.
Just remember, this little boy and his family mean the world to us so the minute you upset them you are also upsetting us along with their many thousands of supporters.
Surely everyone should be looking at the positivity and awareness which will come from sharing Noah’s story?
Look at how this FACTUAL programme covers all aspects of Noah’s health including input from medical professionals across the country!!
This is a story of hope and positivity. This story shows that regardless of the diagnosis or outlook you are given, with love, commitment, support and determination anything is possible!!!
