Meet Thatcher

July 3

Thatcher is a happy 7 ½ year old in 1st Grade who lives locally with his older brother, younger sister, Dad and Mom. He was diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism that stems from a genetic disorder.  It took 5 years and several misdiagnoses to confirm that he suffers from the non-classic form of Rhizomelic Chondrodysplasia Punctata or RCDP, he is one of 16 people worldwide with this diagnosis.  There is only one team of specialists at Children’s Hospital in Delaware who treat children with RCDP. At 12 months, he was diagnosed with Epilepsy.  By the time he was 4, he was experiencing 50-100 seizures per day.  At 3½, he was diagnosed with Autism. His hips were deformed and had major hip surgery last year. He has shortened femur bones caused by Coxa Vera, cataracts and intellectual disabilities which leave him developmentally at the age of a 9-12 month old. His RCDP has also led to heart and respiratory issues. He began taking steps in 2022 but requires constant supervision due to poor balance, coordination and seizure activity. Outside of his home, he uses his wheelchair to get around. He is non verbal and uses a few gestures to communicate. He loves balls, trucks and anything musical.  His favorite pastime is watching fast cars and playing with his older brother.
