This week, Housekeeping Co had the pleasure of putting on a special welcome for one of our Dubai families.
Emily Hay, her son Sam, 8, daughter Maya, 9, and nanny, Lisa, met with some of the team to share more about Sam's diagnosis of Angelman Syndrome, and help spread awareness of the condition.
Diagnosed at 21-months-old, Angelman Syndrome is a rare genetic condition which can affect speech and balance. First noticing signs when Sam was unable to walk or talk, a doctor confirmed that the symptoms were caused by the syndrome, which can be extremely rare.
Having learnt more about Angelman since Sam’s diagnosis six years ago, Emily explained that although it is not the path the family thought they would be on, it has brought them some incredible experiences, moments, and achievements.
