[PHOTOS] Baby Born With Most Of Skull Missing Celebrates First Birthday

Jaxon Strong, the boy who given just days to live when he was born with most of his skull missing, has proven everyone wrong and just celebrated his first birthday, The Daily Mail reports. Before his birth, his parents, Brittany, 27, and Brandon Buell, 30, from Tavares, Florida, were told that their son had a rare brain malfunction called Microhydranencephaly. According to the CDC,  About 1 in 4,859 babies in the United States will be born with Anencephaly and are usually stillborn or die shortly after birth.

“I was devastated. It was heartbreaking because something I always wanted my whole life was happening, but then I was told there was a possibility it might be a stillborn,” said Brittany.

However, on August 27, 2014, Jaxon was born weighing four pounds and has been in the loving care of his parents and world-class doctors ever since.

Jaxon now has over 90,000 likes on Facebook as well as a GoFundMe page which has generated over $50,000 so Brittany can afford to stay home and take care of Jaxon.  It’s all been so overwhelming in a positive way because we can’t go anywhere without someone stopping us, and saying, ‘hey, what’s your story?’ or they would have seen his picture and say, ‘hey, look it’s Jax Strong!’ – his nickname! It’s truly incredible the amount of people he has had an impact on,” she said.
