Ben was born 12 weeks early and weighed 2 pounds 12 ounces. When he was 5 days old they found out he has PVL brain cysts, which we were told may lead to some form of cerebral palsy.
Ben is now 8 and although he can not do quite a few things - walk, talk, sit unaided etc - he is funny, cheeky, very smart and very cute!!
Ben has been through quite a lot in his 8 years, with his hips being his main problem. He has had two hip operations on both hips and will be having another in the near future.
