Noonan sydrome

Never hurd of it huh?!

Text book deffinition: Noonan syndrome is a genetic disorder that prevents normal development in various parts of the body. A person can be affected by Noonan syndrome in various ways: unusual facial characteristics, short stature, heart defects, other physical problems and possibly lower intelligence. Noonan syndrome is caused by a genetic mutation and is acquired when a fetus inherits a copy of an affected gene from a parent (dominant inheritance). It can also occur as a spontaneous mutation, meaning there's no family history involved.There's no specific treatment for Noonan syndrome. Management focuses on controlling the disease's symptoms and complications. Growth hormone may be used to treat short stature in some people with Noonan syndrome.

Adriana has a rare type, its only been know about for 7/8 years. Its a cancer noonan, it doesnt mean she will have cancer but that is what it is called. The kids/teens that have that type are normal noonan kids. They just have those wacky chromozomes. We have no clue were she got it but there are tests being done to see where she got it or what caused it. Alot of the things that are wrong with Adriana are caused by noonan sydrome. She also has alot of the features of a noonan sydrome baby!

As of right now me and TJ have decided to not put her threw any growth hormones at all. She is perfect just the way GOD will make her. Unless it is 100% medically needed after our research and drs proof.
