An inspiring story out of Byron, Illinois about a 1 year old baby born with craniosynostosis. Symptoms did not start until a year into the boy's life.  The doctors in Illinois quickly diagnosed him and performed the life-saving surgery to relieve the pressure in the child's head and allow the brain to continue to grow. Read and watch the video about this brave little guy at the 23WIFR website. 

Learn more about the sign, symptoms, and treatment for craniosynostosis on the Children's Craniofacial Association website.
