STORIES FROM THE SOUTH CENTRAL SKIES
When Porter was six weeks old, he and his mom Tess came down with a cold. Tess wanted to make sure Porter's cold wasn't the result of something worse, so she made an appointment with Porter's pediatrician. While they were there, she asked the pediatrician do a general checkup on Porter because she was concerned about the shape of his head. The pediatrician's examination revealed that Porter was missing one of the two soft spots in his head that babies need to allow their brain to fully develop. Four days later, little Porter had a CT scan and was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis. The following week, Tess and Porter traveled from Amarillo to meet with the surgical team at Cooks Children's in Fort Worth. Porter's surgery was scheduled for three weeks later.
"The times we've been able to schedule an Angel Flight have taken a lot of stress off us," Tess said. "Angel Flight is an amazing program, and we feel blessed to be a part of it."
