Welcome to the webpage of our son Antoni Szymczak.Antoni had a very difficult start in his life. He spent a lot of time in hospitals where he had to go through a lot of painful medical procedures. He has a rare genetic disorder called Kabuki Syndrome which presents in complex medical needs and significant developmental delay.
In spite of this, he is a cheerful, happy boy, who smiles and laughs a lot, loves to dance and sing, play games and watch his favourite TV shows, like any other child :)
As the parents, we want to keep account of what is going on in Antoni’s life, and also to give an insight into the struggles facing the families with disabled children. We want to thank all those who helped, and keep helping, us. Let this be a way to express our gratitude by celebrating Antoni’s happy life.
We'd love to read your comments, so please leave us a note.
