Anthony is a four-year-old boy with a lot of energy and a contagious laugh and smile. He was recently diagnosed with Bronchiolitis Obliterans, an inflammatory condition that affects the lung’s tiniest airways, the bronchioles. This condition caused extensive scarring in both his lungs and Anthony found himself having trouble breathing. Anthony came to St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children for intensive rehabilitation. Thanks to his treatment at St. Mary’s Anthony has been making amazing progress and has learned how to manage his breathing and soon will be evaluated for a lung transplant.
Throughout all of this, Anthony continues to be positive and motivated and has a contagious smile. On any given day you can find him smiling and laughing, playing with his toys and enjoying one of his Grandmas home-cooked meals.
