Emma was born prematurely and remained in the hospital’s ICU for the first 5 weeks of her life. She was diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that results in a number of physical, mental and behavioral issues. A key feature of Prader-Willi syndrome is a constant sense of hunger that usually begins at about 2 years of age.
For the first few years of Emma’s life, she needed a feeding tube. She receives physical, speech and occupational therapies, and takes numerous medications to help control her mood, anxiety and growth issues. Emma’s illness also causes her to grapple with constant hunger, and the urge to compulsively overeat. It’s equally challenging for her family who must continuously supervise her consumption of food.
