Doctors diagnosed Jash’s condition that his bones are so fragile that they can be easily broken through daily activities, and so far, the child has fractured his skull, arm and part of his spine, just by falling or crawling on the ground, according to the British Mirror website.
His mother, Amanda, said the wheelchair he uses everywhere but at his home in Southcott has recently become too big for him, and his family is now trying to raise £3,000 ($3,750) to buy a new specialized lightweight wheelchair..
Lincoln has been fitted with a device known as a “catheter port”, which is placed under the skin of his chest and helps treat him, and his family has so far raised 750 pounds ($940) to buy a wheelchair, and the family is hosting a party near their home on September 18 to raise more money.
An inherited disease means that the collagen in a patient’s bone is missing, low, or of low quality, which makes them brittle, and patients usually need frequent major surgeries to insert metal rods into their bones to support them..
