Casey's Story - Multiple Heart Surgeries Set the Stage for a Promising Future

Casey Dyke has been told he is a mended little miracle. When his mother Gina was pregnant, a routine ultrasound and further prenatal testing at UC Davis Health revealed that her unborn son had a missing tricuspid valve (a congenital heart defect known as tricuspid atresia). He would need a series of surgeries to repair the defect after birth. Now 16-years-old, Casey lives a normal teenage life as he pursues photography, engineering and a promising future.
