Easton was born 8 weeks premature on November 16, 2012. On day 8 of life, Easton had an unexplained brain bleed which led to seizures and a buildup of fluid and pressure on his brain. Easton was given a 50% chance of survival and his parents were told he could suffer sever brain damage if he did survive.
Easton was in the Rochester Mayo Clinic NICU for 10 weeks, had 4 brain surgeries, and multiple procedures to drain fluid from around his brain. He finally had a permanent shunt placed to relieve pressure. He has beaten all odds! He survived the procedures and surgeries and a recent test showed normal brain activity for a premature baby of his age.
Help celebrate this miracle at the Benefit for Baby Easton on Saturday May 4th at Wicked Moose from 2pm - 8pm (with live music to follow). Raffles will be held at 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7PM! There will great food, a bake sale, and many activities and games for children.
