“The BBC reported the inspiring story of Paulo Henrique Machado of Brazil, who has been hooked up to an artificial respirator full-time since he was an infant. Paulo was one of eight children in Sao Paulo’s Clinicas hospital. The children were all given a projected lifespan of only ten years. As he grew up, Paulo lost his friends one by one due to the effects of the disease.”

Paulo has maintained a very positive attitude. Despite his limited mobility, hooked up to machines, he raised $65,000 in an online campaign to be able to animate the series based on “The Adventures of Leca and her Friends,” and it chronicles the growing-up adventure that the children in his ward shared in the hospital.
