Four-Year-Old Who Never Ate Anything In Life

Every parent dreams for the success for his/her child right from the day s/he is born. Getting a phenomenon named after you sounds like success. But this is not what the Langran family wished for.

Oakley syndrome was named after their 4-year-old boy Oakley Langran who began vomiting 100 times a day after he was born. He cannot eat and never will. As a treat, though, he is given a cooked meal to play with on Christmas. Here's his strange story.

Oakley’s condition is so rare that it has been named after him. As a baby and toddler, he vomited almost 100 times a day, before being fitted with a feeding pump which allows nutrients to enter his body via a small tube.

Christmas Gift

Oakley’s parents, Charlene and Stephen, both 35, gave him fake plastic food toys to play with every day. But every Christmas, as a treat, he is given a real home-cooked festive meal to play with. They believe that this is the closest their son could get to enjoying home-cooked food. Poor baby!
