Den Haag, The Netherlands

 The story of Joas

Joas lives in The Hague, The Netherlands. Straight after his birth in July 2006, he developed breathing problems and was brought to a hospital. He stayed there for 4 weeks before he was able to return home. He has had to go to hospital on many ocassions for all kinds of examinations. He has also had an operation on both his eyes as he has glaucoma (high eye pressure). His largest problem is that he has narrowed channels of nose, throat and ears. As a result it is often difficult for him to breathe, especially when he has a cold. Often he has an earache and his bones become older rapidly. Despite his problems he is always happy and has a lot of energy.
