Isaac was born April 14, 2004. Except for the fact that he was overweight, everything else was normal. In fact he was a dream baby. He rarely cried, nursed well, slept lots and was incredibly content. Slowly however things started unraveling and eventually the McFadyen’s learnt that Isaac suffered from a rare disease with no known cure and a short life expectancy. When it became apparent to Andrew McFadyen, Isaac’s father, that there was treatment available, but was denied because of costs, he decided to put up a fight rather than just sit around and wait for his son to die. What is more remarkable is that not only has Andrew helped his son, but is now on a quest to help other parents who find themselves in a similar situation.
