Many are born with certain genetic illnesses that could last their lifetime, and yet they manage to still smile and let God guide them. See this viral story of the boy with real ‘turtle shell’ in his back. The whole article is below.
In the report of a reliable report of Daily Mail UK, the eight-year-old travelled from his home town in Colombia to the UK to meet other children struck down by the rare condition he faced. Didier was labelled 'Turtle boy' after developing a shell-like growth on his back.
But three years ago the youngster underwent a life-changing operation to remove the huge mole, which weight around 20 per cent of his body weight. Didier was diagnosed with the rare illness Congenital Melanocytic Nevus (CMN) in 2011. But what is this CMN?
The congenital melanocytic nevus is a type of melanocytic nevus (or mole) found in infants at birth. This type of birthmark occurs in an estimated 1% of infants worldwide; it is located in the area of the head and neck 15% of the time. The Prognosis of this is large and especially giant congenital nevi are at higher risk for malignancy degeneration into melanoma. Because of the premalignant potential, it is an acceptable clinical practice to remove congenital nevi electively in all patients and relieve the nevocytic overload.
See these statements of the boy’s mother:
'He felt very bad before the surgery, it impeded him from doing a lot of the activities he enjoyed doing.
'When he heard people calling him "Turtle boy" he felt very sad and he would ask "Why do I have this?" It was a very difficult question to answer.
'We always had hope that something would be done.'
Lastly, God has heard the prayers of those who love the boy and the boy himself, and after the surgery, the mole has gone and the boy can live a normal and a happy life now.
