Credit Unions have been supporting their communities children’s hospitals since 1996. Credit Unions for Kids has raised more than $170 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. These vital funds go to help kids like Preston:

Preston and his twin brother, Reid, made their way into the world on November 18, 2011.  They both spent time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at birth, but Reid was able to go home after 5 weeks.  Preston, however, was diagnosed with Failure to Thrive and Atresia of the right ear.  He was transferred to KU Medical Center to undergo a scope of his airway.  While under anesthesia, he had a laryngospasm, causing him to code on the table and forcing doctors to perform an emergency tracheotomy to save his life.  After two more months in the NICU at KU, Preston was able to join his twin brother at home, but his medical journey didn’t end there.  When he was 18 months old, Preston had his first airway reconstruction surgery and when he was three years old, he was finally able to have his trach permanently removed.  He has had an additional airway reconstruction surgery since then and is breathing better than ever!  In addition, Preston has had multiple surgeries on his right ear, the most recent in November of 2017 to permanently mount his Bone Anchored Hearing Aid.

Today, Preston is the healthiest he has ever been.  His breathing is fantastic and this is hopefully the end of the road for his for airway surgeries.  He loves playing hockey in the driveway, spending time with his brother and playing Legos.  He has a lively spirit, loves to laugh and tell jokes and wants to be a Spy Agent when he grows up!
