Once Upon A Hero chooses a 2019 beneficiary family

January 2019

Once Upon A Hero's 2019 beneficiary family is the Jaworowski family. Josh and Bethany Jaworowski are the parents of 16 month old twins, Jayden and Josiah. Jayden  and Josiah have been diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disease called MECP2  Duplication Syndrome. MECP2 Duplication Syndrome is extremely rare (maybe 1,000  cases worldwide). 

No two children experience MECP2 Duplication Syndrome the same way. Jayden and  Josiah both have low muscle tone, significant developmental delays, difficulty swallowing, feeding difficulties and have g-tubes. Josiah also has breathing difficulties, seizures and possible immunosuppression. He has been hospitalized for going into respiratory distress from a common cold. They both have several  specialists and receive multiple therapies each week.

Half of those affected by MECP2 Duplication Syndrome never walk or talk. Life expectancy is on average 26 years old. Recurrent infections can cause life-threatening complications and are a major contributing factor for reduced life-expectancy. The  Jaworowski's are a single income family and Once Upon A Hero will be  helping them with the medical and personal financial challenges they meet while fighting this disease affecting Jayden and Josiah.
