The Story of Kayse Alexander Cormier
Super Kayse was born on September 29, 2015 normal and healthy. 3 weeks later he went into heart failure. Kayse was rushed to a local hospital where he was stabilized and transported to a local children’s hospitals then airlifted to a regional children’s cardiac hospital within 8 hours.
Kayse was suffering with Coarctation of the Aorta – Ductal Coarctation, Aortic Stenosis and VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect). Coarctation of the Aorta is a narrowing within a main artery coming from the heart. This narrowing stopped blood flow to areas of the body like the lungs. VSD is a hole between the left and right ventricle. This hole is big enough to cause major issues so a patch has to be placed in his heart to create a wall.
Kayse underwent his first surgery in October to correct the Coarctation. A band was placed around the heart to control blood flow until the VSD surgery would take place months later.
February, Kayse is having his 3rd surgery to repair the VSD. This entails open heart surgery and the band previously placed will be removed.
