A teenage boy had his life turned upside down after doctors discovered he suffered from a rare brain condition.
The condition was so severe it caused the once vibrant young man to now be speechless, unable to move freely, and completely dependent on others for care.
NBC 5's Larry Miller visited the young man to get his story.
