Photos: 'Miracle' boy defies doctors by walking and talking despite having half his brain removed


A young boy who had half his brain removed has defied doctors by learning to walk and talk - despite being told he never would.


Lincon Freeman was born with a port wine birthmark on his face, but when he underwent an MRI scan medics discovered it also affected his brain.

The brave boy, now five years old, had a condition called Sturge-Weber syndrome which made him suffer up to 80 seizures a day.


Doctors decided to remove half of his brain in a risky eight-hour operation, and though he does suffer from other symptoms, he is now walking and talking.
Lincon spent the first year of his life in the care of doctors at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital and underwent the operation at the age of 13 months.


Doctors told Lincon's mothers, partners Kim Ratcliffe and Donna Freeman, that their son would never walk or talk but they called him an "inspiration".

Kim told the Manchester Evening News: "He is so determined and is an inspiration to us.
