Nicholas Coke Baby?
 
Nicholas Coke is a baby that was born one year ago with a rare and horrific birth defect that left him without most of his brain.
So weird, a baby with no brain. Babies suffering from the condition, known as anencephaly, are often born without the tops of their heads, the skin and skull missing, and they usually die within hours or days at the most.
Is baby Nicholas Coke going to die too? How much is he going to live?

Most babies do not last long , but Nicholas Coke actually is celebrating his first birthday.
Poor baby, Nicholas Coke cannot see, hear or do anything in which a normal baby is assumed to do.
That's so sad. Nicholas Coke has changed thinking in the medical world. As not only do most babies with this die within hours of being born, but that he has amazingly now lived to see his first year.
I hope Nicholas Coke gets better.

He doesn't have a brain- he's not going to "get better"

He is a medical surprise.... I can't belive this. I'm going to be a doctor and I know spina bifida, but it' s really a very big thing.
