Henry Robert Kruck died at the age of three on February 25 wrapped in the love of his family. He was born with a chromosome anomaly called 1p36 deletion syndrome, which affected him in many ways. Henry was no stranger to Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital, where he spent his final days after suffering a massive seizure that sent him into cardiac arrest.
Henry’s effect on the world was so much greater than the effect his condition had on him. To learn more about this boy’s amazing life and love, visit https://thekruckkronicles.com.
