Having not met his developmental milestones, and following plenty of investigations and procedures, Billy was diagnosed with Pallister Killian Syndromme (PKS), a very rare chromosomal disorder at 13 months of age. Billy was one of only three children in Ireland with PKS. Sadly Billy passed away on March 24th, 2013, just one week short of his sixth birthday.
The Byrne family wish to provide other families with the opportunities they never themselves had the joy as experiencing as a family.
Billy’s World is a project to try and create holiday theme park that caters for children with special needs and their families – so everyone can have fun together! But it will also serve to be more than that!
We hope it will become a location for conferences, lectures and events that not only help to give parents advice and information but also to raise awareness for many conditions that affect so many children and their families in Ireland.
