"Salem is our 6-year-old pride and joy; he was born with Apert Syndrome. Apert Syndrome is a rare craniofacial syndrome that occurs in 1 in 160,000 births. Due to the fusions in the facial bones and skull, Salem has required almost 20 procedures in his life so far, and will require many more. One of these surgeries that was lifesaving was to have a trach placed to help Salem breathe when he was 6 months old. While the trach has been a huge blessing, it has been the cause of many issues Salem has had over the years, and caused several life-threatening illnesses, events, and extra surgeries.
"Many of Salem’s issues must be treated by very experienced surgeons, whom we have learned of and contacted in Cincinnati, Ohio. We live in Kansas and, having a child with so many medical needs has taught us, as parents, the importance of being a strong advocate for our child, and also how to fight for the best doctors and care for our child with complex medical needs.
"We are extremely thankful for the miracle of Miracle Flights, because it allows us the opportunity to get our child to the specialists and doctors our son needs." Salem’s mother, Kansas
