Kingston Parry

At 4 months of age, Kingston's doctor noticed a possible issue concerning his skull, due to an irregular shape, so he and his family were sent to Riley Hospital for Children. After numerous tests were performed at Riley, Kingston was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis. Craniosynostosis is a birth defect in which one or more of the joints between the bones of the skull close prematurely, before the brain is fully formed. With craniosynostosis, the brain can't grow in its natural shape and the head is misshapen. At 8 months of age, Kingston underwent a 12 hour surgery in which the doctors removed his skull entirely, broke apart the fused portions of his skull, added spacers, and molded it into having the necessary "soft spots" so that his brain could grow normally. Kingston is now a very active 4-year-old. He attends pre-school and loves anything sports and Superheros!
