Welcome to the webpage of our son Antoni Szymczak.Antoni had a very difficult start in his life. He spent a lot of time in hospitals where he had to go through a lot of painful medical procedures. He has a rare genetic disorder called Kabuki Syndrome which presents in complex medical needs and significant developmental delay.
In spite of this, he is a cheerful, happy boy, who smiles and laughs a lot, loves to dance and sing, play games and watch his favourite TV shows, like any other child :)
