Noah and his 21-year-old mother, Ashleigh White, had attended a christening in September 2018, when he was a newborn. He was passed around to multiple relatives and friends, who were all kissing and hugging him, White told Caters News Agency.

“About a week later, his eye started going a little bit red. It started swelling and getting blisters, so we ended up taking him to the doctors,” White said.

He was later diagnosed with Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), which is known as the “kiss of death,” which almost caused him to lose sight in one eye.

Noah received the anti-viral drugs for two weeks, an hour a time, three hours a day. He spent two and a half months in the hospital recovering from the disease.

He will have to receive the anti-viral drug for 9 more months, after a relapse in March 2019.
