Kaheel Clark-Smith

Kaheel Clark-Smith is a baby boy who was born with a rare incurable disease that has made the poor baby lose 60% of his skin at just three-weeks-old.

The toddler is so fragile that a small touch could peel his skin away, that means a cuddle from his parents could cause his skin to fall off.

The poor baby lose 60% of his skin

Kaheel’s condition was diagnosed as Epidermolyosis (EB), after being born with small blisters on his arms.

Kaheel's aunt, Brandi Smith, said the baby was diagnosed the day he was born on December 28, but at first doctors thought it was a minor case and sent him home.

Brandi also said doctors gave them hope because he was eating and all his vital signs were fine but then the baby had a bad breakout and he was admitted to NICU on January 4.

They are fundraising money to have him flown to a specialist EB centre on the other side of the country

Since then, his parents Kadyem, 22, and Kyera, 20, have been unable to leave the hospital in Seattle, Washington for nearly two weeks.

They are fundraising money to have him flown to a specialist EB centre on the other side of the country. Little Kaheel took a turn for the worst last week and developed a staph infection that he is currently recovering from.

Brandi added: "The hospital had never seen a case like it and there was a lack of understanding on what to do and it seems to have gotten worse."

All will be well!
