09 Nov Connor-Gentry1
Connor has Down Syndrome. Fifty percent of all Down Syndrome children have a heart defect. He underwent his first open heart surgery when he was 20 days old. At five months, Connor underwent complete repair. Despite continuous medical interventions and efforts to repair his cardiac function, he continues to have a compromised immune system. Usually, Connor comes down with a cold or the flu and ends up in the hospital for treatment.
