Noah's Incredible Fight To Growing Stronger And Defying All Odds — Joins RTM

In this crazy thing called life, we are each given a destiny. For 3-year-old Noah, he was born with a number of complications that would set the course of his life — but not define it. His mother Genesis Emery had a healthy pregnancy and normal delivery but for whatever reason Noah's life would be much different than she imagined. Once he was almost two years old, doctors discovered a unique genetic chromosome that led to a form of Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome. Although he doesn't carry all of the symptoms, he does endure more than enough. This little boy is a fighter and while he is unable to speak right now, he knows and communicates using American Sign Langauge. A year ago he gained laughter and smiles — something quite remarkable for a child his age with Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome. Each day he grows stronger and more independent as his walking progresses. Noah, we are so proud of you and know we are cheering you on! Embrace this destiny of yours. Genesis joins our RightThisMinute hosts via Skype to share more about Noah's story and her company The Little Dapper Collection. View Now
