Landon Ladwig suffers from a rare condition that leaves him breathing and eating out of a tube. He loves when grandma reads him stories and he likes playing with the Apps on his Ipad but last week someone broke into his family's home and cleaned them out. His Ipad was among the items taken.

Landon's mother Brandy explained their difficult situation the day that they were burglarized. "The storms knocked out our power and we have a lot of equipment that can only last so long on battery back up so we had to leave."

The burglary happened while they were staying with family which raises eyebrows. "Normally there is always someone here, either myself or my husband or a nurse with Landon," said Brandy.

She's not certain but it is possible the thief knew the family and their situation. "No one touched the bathroom and nobody touched my son's room but the rest of the house was turned upside down," said Ladwig.
