My name is Leo; I'm 18 months old. I live in Barcelona (Spain), and I love going to the pool, to the beach, to the park, going to my nursery and playing with my dad. I'm always happy and smiling.

Your Story

I was born in September 2017, and when I was 11 months old, I was diagnosed with Angelman syndrome. Angelman syndrome is a rare genetic disease. It affects 1 in 20,000 births and most cases, its cause is chance. Angelman syndrome is a genetic disorder that mainly affects the nervous system. Symptoms include severe intellectual disability, developmental disability, balance and movement problems, the absence of language, epilepsy, hyperactivity, seizures, and sleep problems and others. Despite this situation, my parents began to work with me since my diagnosis through my therapies to help me to be the best version of myself. At the same time, they created the non-profit association "Leo es mi angel", and they are raising funds to send them to the investigation of the cure of this disease. They are very close to finding it. We have high hopes.
