Chad Cloward’s son Dallan wasn’t supposed to live past 2 years old.
But Dallan, who was born with a developmental disorder called called Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, defied the odds and is set to turn 30 next month.
So, to celebrate, dad and son planned 30 activities to do together leading up Dallan’s big day on Aug. 12.
“I love watching Dallan continue to defy the odds,” Chad told TODAY.
“It was important for me to do something special for him to mark the accomplishments he’s made in his life so far and all he’s done for me, too.”
People with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome typically experience delayed growth and intellectual disabilities. In Chad’s case, he is very slight, only around 55 pounds, and he can’t speak or walk long distances.
“One of his true miracles was he learned to walk at age 14 — almost all kids with this syndrome don’t ever even sit up,” Chad, 53, wrote on Facebook.
