A boy born with half his skull missing is celebrating his second birthday today, despite his parents being told to abort him.

Jaxon Buell won the hearts of thousands across the world after his story was shared last year.

The two-year-old suffers from a rare brain malfunction called Microhydranencephaly.

Doctors picked it up on an ultrasound before he was born and advised mum Brittany and dad
Brandon to consider terminating the pregnancy.

But thankfully, they decided against it and now the brave lad, who’s earned the nickname Jax Strong, is thriving against all the odds.

Brandon, 31, told Metro.co.uk:

“He is doing very well, he is very comfortable and very happy. He’s smiling all the time, he laughs, he’s working on different things, like how to keep his head upright.

“He still has his struggles where he throws up, he still has several seizures several times a day, he’s still on the smaller side at 13 pounds but he’s certainly developing.”
