Born with a cleft lip and palate, and living with joint issues, Andrew Range has overcome his medical challenges and will play ball at Busch Stadium.
Baby Josiah has a rare condition called gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia. It causes extra bone growth in his skull and jawbone, and causes the rest of the bones in his body to be extremely brittle.
Matthew Roche has a rare disease called Crouzon syndrome, which causes the skull bones to fuse prematurely. This leads to craniofacial deformities including bulging eyes and dental problems. Matthew has had multiple surgeries to try and normalize his appearance. Now that he is full-grown, he is ready for a full reconstruction.
One look at Landon Snethen, and you can tell there’s a lot going on in that head of his. Landon is a happy, busy 1-year old boy, but when he was only three weeks old, his family had real concerns.
When Wyatt Heilman was 4 months old, he was diagnosed with craniosynostosis, a condition that occurs when one or more joints between the bone plates of the skull fuse together. Trying to find the best treatment for Wyatt led his Michigan family to travel miles from home to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
