Isabella Groves' parents urge awareness of Pitt Hopkins syndrome

A three-year-old girl from Denbighshire who suffers from a rare genetic condition has defied doctors' predictions and started to walk.

Isabella Groves, from Saron near Denbigh, is one of only 150 people in the world who has Pitt Hopkins syndrome, which can cause mental retardation, epilepsy and intestinal problems.

Her parents, Leanne and Andrew, want to raise awareness of the condition. They believe there are probably more children who have the illness, but have not been properly diagnosed.
