Sister Wives: Maddie Brown Brush Shares First Full-View Picture of Evie Brush
Today Maddie took to Instagram and shared the first full-view picture of her daughter online since her birth reveal. Little Evie Brush was born with FATCO Syndrome, which is extremely rare. FATCO’s an acronym from the scientific name fibular aplasia, tibial campomelia, and oligosyndactyly syndrome.
This syndrome involves the bones in the extremities not fully developing. It is so rare that there’s very little known about this syndrome. So why this happens is unknown, as Maddie Brown Brush shared.
The young couple, often seen on Sister Wives, were aware of some abnormalities early on. At their routine 26-week ultrasound, they found out. The procedure which usually takes 45 minutes, lasted two-hours. It was at that time doctors told them that they didn’t see 10 fingers.
Caleb and Maddie Brush Knew Early On Baby Missing Fingers
When Evie was born, these Sister Wives parents found out what this syndrome meant for their baby girl. She was missing three of her fingers and a toe. She was also missing her fibula. Her tibia is bowed as well. Evie’s forearm is also shortened and her fingers are fused.
The daughter of Sister Wives celebs Kody Brown and Janelle Brown struggled with revealing this to the public. Both Caleb and Maddie Brown Brush feared this could make their precious baby girl a target of online bullying. So they waited for a while after her birth.
Maddie said, “We were hesitant to share Evie’s condition publicly for fear that our infant daughter would become the target of mean jokes and cyberbullying”.
No doubt, Evie Brush is so special in her family’s eyes. So, Caleb and wife Maddie Brown Brush opted not to keep Evie’s diagnosis hidden. They want her to be as proud of herself and who she is as they are.
