Joannah (Jo) is 2 year old and was diagnosed with CdLS at 6 months. Her gene mutation that caused CdLS is the NIPBL gene. 

Joannah has some limb differences, three fingers on her right hand and six on her left. She also has the very obvious facial features of CdLS. Joannah has myopia and wears glasses, and has severe to profound hearing loss in both ears. Jo takes all her liquids via a g-tube.
