We’ve been friends with Noe and his parents for many years. Noe was born with Noonan syndrome, a genetic disorder that prevents normal development in various parts of the body. A person can be affected by Noonan syndrome in various ways. These include unusual facial characteristics, short stature, heart defects, other physical problems and possible developmental delays. There is no specific treatment for Noonan syndrome. Management focuses on controlling the disease's symptoms and complications. So this is a situation where we help the family to provide the best possible life for their child. Noe always smiled and laughed when we visited. His smile was infectious. His parents made every effort to bring Noe to all of our fiestas and they worked hard to give him as much happiness as possible. They knew he had a weak heart but it still comes as a shock when a child dies. Because of his weak heart and lungs, Noe passed when he was 14 years old (the photo shows him at that age). We continue to visit his families with groceries, especially in these difficult times.
