 Rare Medical Condition Stops Daisy, 3, from Swallowing Food
Three-year-old Daisy Uranjek-Hollick cannot swallow food, and has been diagnosed with a rare medical condition.

Daisy is suffering from Pompe Disease, a genetic problem that affects her throat muscles, which means she has to be fed through a tube in her stomach four or five times daily.

However, mum Jennifer puts out a plate for her whenever the family is having meals.

"Even though Daisy's never shown any interest in food we like to make her part of meal times as much as possible," the Daily Star quoted Jennifer, 28, as saying.

She added: "Despite all of Daisy's problems, she is a really positive little girl. She's been through so much in her life already, but she always has a smile."
