A Cure for Cosmo

Cosmo has been diagnosed with a rare type of Menkes Syndrome as well as Cardiomyopathy Left Ventricle Non Compaction. After 3 years of searching, doctors believe he has both of these life threatening unrelated diseases although no one else in our families have ever been known to have either of these rare conditions. Our wish is that one day soon a cure will be found for Cosmo, and every other child with a rare disease because no little one deserves this, ever. But until, that happens and we figure out a solution to these "rare diseases" we will never give up. We will fight till the end with our unwavering stubbornness, and enjoy every day and every minute we have with each other, because our little ones deserve that. We are lucky. We thank God every day. Just look at our little Cosmo's smile. So to all the other families going through this, we send you our love and wish you lots of courage and tons of smiles.

Love, Cosmo Sides and Family XOXOXO
