Olivia Farnsworth, The Bionic Girl Who Doesn't Feel Hunger, Pain Or The Need To Sleep!

Olivia Farnsworth, a simple, cute but unique little girl, who baffled medics when they discovered she has a rare chromosome condition that omitted the feelings of hunger, fatigue or pain from her life forever.

The UK girl is believed to be the only person in the world to exhibit the three symptoms together. The strange disorder even allows her to go five to six days without sleeping and feeding. Her life is just unbelievably strange surrounded by an unexplained science-mystery. To say, Olivia has the strange super-human abilities that lead millions of people to hear her engrossing story.

The rare condition of little Olivia is described as "chromosome 6 deletion" but the mix of super-human abilities has never been reported before. Some of the doctors have even called her the "bionic girl", who is made of steel and has got no sense of danger.

In 2016, when Olivia was only 7-year-old, she once went out with her mother and got run over, eventually, she was hit by a car and dragged about 100 feet down the road. After that horrendous accident, she just got up and started walking back to her mother. She was just like, "What's going on?"

Because of the impact, she should have had severe injuries. She had a tyre mark on her chest. But her only injuries were she had no skin on her toe or her hip.

She also once fell badly and ripped her lip off and didn't say anything to her parents. Later, she had to have major plastic surgery to correct it.

Chromosome abnormality or chromosome disorder is a missing, extra, or irregular portion of chromosomal DNA. People with chromosome disorders suffer from various diseases and disabilities –one common disorder is Down’s Syndrome which is a genetic chromosome 21 disorder causing developmental and intellectual delays. But the case of Olivia is completely strange and fascinating which makes anyone absolutely astounded.

▍What Is A Chromosomal Deletion Syndrome?

⌻ DNA Inside The Cell Nucleus
Inside the nucleus of our each body cell are microscopic bodies called chromosomes that are responsible for the function and reproduction of each cell in our body, empowering us to live. Chromosomes are made of two large molecules or strands of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), actually, these strands are called the genes, that give the instructions that control over the cell’s function and reproduction. To say, the genes control everything to make us live.

Human cells have 23 pairs of chromosomes (one pair of sex chromosomes that indicate the male or female and 22 pairs of autosomes that contain the rest of the genetic hereditary information), giving a total of 46 per cell. Hence, we normally have 23 types of chromosomes and have two copies of our each and every chromosome.

Chromosomal deletion syndromes result from partially or totally deletion of a single or multi chromosome-pairs. However, chromosomal deletion syndromes typically indicate larger deletions or a total pair deletion that are visible using karyotyping techniques. Although, some losses of the specific gene-function are also considered to be the part of Chromosome deletion, since being a smaller form of deletion or so-called 'Chromosomal Microdeletion-syndrome'.

There are hundreds of diseases and disabilities linked to a single pair of chromosome deletion or loss of the specific genes-function. Some examples of those syndromes are cited here below:

• Chromosome 5-Deletion that causes cri du chat syndrome, Parkinson's disease, etc.

• Chromosome 4-Deletion that causes Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, Bladder cancer, Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, etc.

• Prader–Willi syndrome –actually, this genetic disorder occurs due to the loss of the specific gene-functions, instead of a chromosome deletion. In newborns, symptoms include weak muscles, poor feeding, and slow development.

• Angelman Syndrome (AS) –it's a genetic disorder that mainly affects the nervous system. Symptoms include a small head and a specific facial appearance, severe intellectual disability, developmental disability, speaking problems, balance and movement problems, seizures, and sleep problems. It also occurs due to the function-losses of some specific genes.

Whereas, Olivia's Chromosome 6 is totally omitted that usually spans more than 170 million base pairs (the building material of DNA) and represents between 5.5 and 6% of the total DNA in cells. It contains the Major Histocompatibility Complex, which contains over 100 genes related to the immune response, some other body responses and their various complex functions. This type of chromosomal deletion never been reported before, and the researchers are still finding how and why did she develop such a strange and peculiar disorder!

However, there are many different chromosome 6 aberrations possible, each with different symptoms, and all of them are extremely rare. The further information and the possibility to sign up and participate in the Chromosome 6 Research Project is available on: www.chromosome6.org
