Abrahim Hassan is a bit different than everyone else in the world he has three parents! His mother is affected with Leigh syndrome which affects the development of the nervous system, which took the lives of two of her children. So doctors used this new “3 parent technique” to remove the disease form the mother.
To replace the lost DNA when removing the disease doctors needed a donor, which is the third parent.
The baby was born in Mexico but the team of doctors who made this possible were located in New York. Dr. John Zhang was the head doctor on this and is photographed above with now five month old Abrahim.
