A three-year-old boy remains upbeat despite battling an extremely rare condition that has made the right side of his face heavily swollen. Victor Padilla was born with CLOVES Syndrome – an overgrowth illness that causes complex vascular anomalies leading to the formation of tumours on the body. CLOVES, which in Victor’s case stands for Congenital Lipomatous Overgrowth with Vascular Anomalies, is said to have only been diagnosed in a couple of hundred people worldwide. But despite the terrible nature of Victor’s condition, his parents Jennifer and Jerry Padilla have sent him to pre-school in Rochester, New York, and could not be happier with the progress he is making.
