Granger Y. a super 2 year old with PCD and Bronchiectasis all the way from Minnesota.
Granger was born at 36 weeks and spent 2 weeks in the special care unit. At 9 months he had tubes placed for repeated ear infections. At 17 months he was seen by gastroenterology for vomiting after eating. And in 2022 he was diagnosed with asthma.
Granger’s Pulmonologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota explains Granger has been dealing now with repeated respiratory infections and a chronic wet cough. It is very important to have a vest for respiratory therapy in this situation to provide airway clearance and ultimately prevent life threatening infections.
It has been a pleasure to work with Hillrom and Mayo Clinic to get this little fighter the equipment he needs to live a healthy life day to day! Granger’s mother found LMFF through recent #flymetothemoon recipient Mikhael and identified with Lea’s story.
