Before my son was diagnosed with a rare genetic syndrome that ultimately meant he would have a learning disability for life, we were told that he may need surgery.

Friends from near and far rallied round and we were inundated with offers of help during this difficult time. Further investigation established that surgery was not needed and my son became undiagnosed, he was a SWAN (syndrome without a name).
