Meet Matthew. Matthew was born on May 29, 2013 with a rare condition called ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency (OTC deficiency.) The disorder is one of a group of disorders called urea cycle disorders, and this particular disorder occurs in approximately 1 out of every 800,000 births.
Matthew’s is a more severe manifestation than most, a type that shows up in only about 1 out of every 10 OTC children, and almost always results in death within a few days of birth.

We are making slow but steady progress in Matthew’s physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Here he’s really enjoying this food, amazing considering his long history of oral aversion. https://www.facebook.com/HealingMatthew/videos/751408375024268/
