Miles Story

By uclahealth

"We're from Seattle. We were on vacation in Palm Springs when Miles stopped breathing. He was drinking some formula and stopped breathing for about three minutes, they had to do CPR," says Krissy, mother of 10-month-old Miles. "We were told to come to Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA because they have the best pediatric care. So far the care has been good, and we're grateful for the care we've received." Miles was born with tracheoesophageal fistula, or TEF. "TEF means he was born with his trachea and esophagus connected to his stomach," explains Krissy. "He had surgery two days after he was born, but there are complications afterwards and will be throughout his life.”
