Amazing Kids, Amazing Stories: Carson's Story

Carson and his DadShortly after twins Carson and Caden were born on March 14, 2012, their parents learned that Carson had two very serious health problems involving his esophagus and his heart.

Carson’s esophagus was not formed correctly and to save his life, he would need to have a somewhat risky surgery almost immediately. In addition, Carson was diagnosed with a very serious heart defect known as Tetrology of Fallot.
