Baby Jude turns 2

- Jude Peters was not expected to live past 2 weeks -- but he celebrated his 2nd birthday on Sunday.

Peters has a brain disorder called rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata -- which is a lethal form of dwarfism.

With each passing pay, Peters spreads a message of faith, hope, survival and love to thousands of Facebook followers -- often referred to as Jude's Tribe.

Peters is scheduled to take part in a groundbreaking clinical trial this Fall that could prolong his life. Rhizo Kids rarely live past 2-years old because of a reduction in plasmalogens. This trial would attempt to fix the deficiency.
