“Incompatible with Life” was the label given to Brandon Bosma at birth. Born with a genetic condition called Mosaic Trisomy 18, learning and normal milestones became huge challenges. These obstacles, however, did not prevent him from becoming a strong advocate and speaker for the International Trisomy 18 &13 community. His website and Facebook page bring hope to families worldwide. Brandon is an avid volunteer in his community. He is a winner of the Enbridge Famous Five Award, Vimy Pilgrimage Award, and the Pride of Strathcona award. Brandon’s TEDxYouth talk will delve into the difficulties of growing up with this diagnosis, as well as challenging the notion of who is worthy of medical treatment and life itself.
