Connor Looby

*, NY, NY

Connor was born 8 lbs 6 ounces and was discharged from the hospital as a “healthy” baby. But for the first few years of his life, Connor was in the hospital at least once a month for a few days due to infections & dehydration. At the time, his feet, legs and abdomen were swollen to about double the size of birth and the vommitting had progressed. As a family, we greatly support the Lymphatic Education & Research Network and are eager for the advances in research that can help with the lymphedema and the lymphangiectasia. Currently there are a few doctors researching procedures to close the lymphatics that burst. We are hopeful that this can be perfected and Connor will some day benefit from the research  - The Looby family
