12-year-old boy Landon Jones of Cedar Falls was a normal, active kid until October 14th of 2013. That day he awoke and had no interest in food or drink, was dealing with extreme vertigo, and more. Unfortunately, more than a year later, he and his family are still dealing with it.  To date, Landon has lost 35 pounds. It's believed he may have a malfunctioning hypothalamus. I'd never heard of it, and you probably haven't either, but it's hugely important in our daily lives.
