“Stephen Damiani’s persona burns through this story as an intelligent, highly focused fanatic. How else do you save your boy who has been diagnosed with a rare brain disorder, so rare it has no name? All you are told is that the myelin – the insulation that surrounds the nerves of the brain – is missing or breaking down. For little Massimo this meant the signals from the brain weren’t travelling down the nerve pathways. Six years ago, when he was 12 months old, Massimo’s developmental milestones stopped and he was regressing. He could not stand or speak. Stephen and his wife Sally were losing their son; and his prognosis was dire.” – SMH
