Tiago is a 7-year-old boy who suffers from cerebral palsy.
When he was born, doctors told his parents he would never come out of a vegetative state, that he would never recognise them or feel any kind of connection with anyone, that he would never stand up, talk or smile.
This series of images shows how the love, hope and persistence of a family can overcome a sentence like the one handed to Tiago when he was born.
His parents refused to accept what they were told and, together with him, continue to fight and put all their efforts into his recovery.
Although he is facing a lot of difficulties, for Tiago every day is an opportunity to reach higher. He often smiles when people around him talk to him, he shows a lot of love and affection, and co-operates with all his therapists to achieve results.
Faced with a lot of financial problems, his parents have moved mountains to collect funds to support all his intensive treatments.
