Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are going to use this website to help keep family and friends updated in one place. As everyone knows, Anthony has been a fighter since day 1! While pregnant with Anthony, he was diagnosed with 22q (a genetic condition) and Spina Bifida. The NICU staff nicknamed him Ant-man, which is so fitting since he’s our real life superhero. We’ve linked some resources below if you’re interested in learning more about 22q or Spina Bifida. Both are complex diagnosis’s, referred to as snowflake conditions, because no 2 cases are the same and they can present in so many different ways.https://22q.org/what-is-22q/https://www.spinabifidaassociation.org/what-is-spina-bifida-2/
Anthony has had several major surgeries already in his short life but through it all he is always smiling and laughing. We’re gearing up for his next big surgery in April and he’ll have more over in the next few years. We’ll update this page during his stay and share other progress/milestones in the future.
We appreciate your support, prayers and love! We would not have made it this far without it.
Kara, Frank and Olivia
