EA/TEF Awareness Month

​January is EA/TEF awareness month. Lucas has type C Esophageal Atresia with Tracheo-Esophageal Fistula, in which the upper segment of the esophagus ended in a blind pouch (EA) and the lower segment of the esophagus was attached to the trachea (TEF). On day 2 of life, Lucas’s esophagus was connected! Over the last 3.5 years, Lucas has completed 27 surgeries. We are blessed to have amazing surgeons and outstanding medical benefits which allow us to travel to Boston Children’s Hospital which is #1 in the world for this condition! Lucas is truly our miracle boy who is defying the odds!!!
Below is a quick yet great article written by a fellow EA/TEF mommy.
