Baby Born With Partially Developed Brain Beats Odds to Meet Santa

Jaxon Buell was born with an extreme brain malformation.

— -- The parents of an infant who beat the odds and survived despite an extreme brain malformation posted a picture of the boy's first visit with Santa.

Jaxon Buell was born in August 2014 with Microhydranencephaly, a rare condition where the brain tissue is replaced with fluid, according to his parents. Doctors were concerned that after being born, Jaxon wouldn't survive the week, but despite his severe disability the infant is now nearly 15 months old.

The infant is doing so well he even got his first trip to visit Santa Claus and sit on his lap.
