Cornelia de Lange Syndrome affects many parts of the body and can also cause pain and difficulties for the individual. Some of the characteristics of this syndrome include low birth weight, slow growth, developmental delays, disfigured limbs, and distinctive facial features. Many behavioral issues are also associated with this syndrome such as self-injury (which can cause the individual pain and harm), autistic-like behaviors, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit disorder (ADD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Another common ailment experienced by people with this syndrome is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This is a disease that can also cause a lot of pain and can onset eating difficulties.
This all-effecting syndrome has influenced Simone, her husband, and her four healthy daughters greatly, but it has also helped them cherish the little aspects of life. They “see the tiny things that Quinton does and celebrate each tiny stride he makes.” Seeing Quinton happy motivates Simone to keep pressing forward, to use her spare time to create nourishing soaps for others, and to step optimistically forward for Quinton and the family. For Simone, even though “things are very challenging many times, having him still, after 18 years, is a blessing!” Visit Scentual Soap to learn more about Simone’s business or how to purchase product and help Quinton.
