These Siblings Have Not Slept For Past 15 Years And Will Never Sleep. The siblings named Hayley Webb and Lachlan Webb have been diagnosed with Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI), which is known to be a very rare disorder of the brain. The people with this disorder can never fall asleep in their life and this is nothing lesser than a danger.
This disorder is genetic and one person in ten million people suffers from this disease. The siblings started noticing their symptoms when they were teens and now they’re 28 and 30, desperately hoping for a miracle.
The mother and grandmother of the siblings suffered from the same disease and were killed by this disease. The disease is bound to kill the Webb siblings as well unless any miracle happens. And they both are waiting for a miracle now. But currently, there is no cure to this disease.
The siblings are admitted in a research center at the University of California now days. Doctors and scientists are conducting tests on them to find a cure and both siblings hope that a cure will be found before the illness takes their lives.
Their grandmother passed away at 69, and their mother passed away at 61 with the same disease. They know many of their relatives who died with the same disease.
But now things are changed and technology is much more advanced, So Hayley and Lachlan Webb are hoping that the research will eventually find a cure for this disease and they will not die like their mother and grandmother.
