Jacob Losen of Mukwonago is a 10 year old boy, living with Cri Du Chat Syndrome, defying the limitations, providing hope for others, and will participate in local awareness activities. Cri Du Chat, also known as 5p- syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder that is characterized by intellectual disability and delayed development, as well as weak muscle tone in infancy.
