Edgar is a 4-year old boy with Down’s Syndrome. He had a rough start in infancy and underwent heart surgery for VSD, history of pulmonary hypertension and club foot repair for which he wears an orthotic. He has also undergone a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, supraglottoplasty, and has had PE tubes placed two times. Through all of this, Edgar and his mother have coped extremely well. He is now a happy, cooperative, thriving child and a HERO in our eyes.
