With his big, beautiful eyes and tiny hands clutching cuddly toys he looks like any other newborn baby boy.
But instead of watching their son Axel grow, Claire and Merv Christie can only cling to the precious memories they have of him.
The tot was born with a rare diaphragm deficiency and when died when was just 100 days old.
Despite his short life, Axel made a big impact on those who knew him and his family are determined to use their experience to help others.
Axel was born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a condition that means the sheet of muscle between the chest and abdomen is deficient, causing breathing and lung development issues.
A hole in his diaphragm caused his internal organs to come up into his chest, squashing his heart and lungs and preventing them from forming correctly during pregnancy.
Now his loved ones have organised a concert to commemorate Axel’s life and raise money for CDH UK, the charity that helped his parents, sister Olivia, eight, and brother Kash, two, during his illness and after his death on May 16.
Mrs Christie, of Udny Green, said: “I wasn’t able to do a lot for Axel when he was here.
“I hope that if any good can come out of this in terms of raising awareness for the small charity CDH UK, let alone the condition, then I’m doing something positive.
“We think about Axel all the time.
“He was an amazing boy and is constantly with us.
“He cut into the hearts of so many people, even those who he hadn’t even met.
“We are so proud of what he did and hope his gorgeous eyes can put a message out there about who he was and raise awareness about CDH.”
Music on the Green will be held at Udny Green hall on Sunday, August 2 at 6pm with performances from Con Anima Chamber Choir and Leighann Esslemont, who has penned a special song called Axel’s Song of Hope.
Concert-goers are welcome to bring and share food after the concert and there is a suggested donation of £10 per adult with free entry for children.
