Before Briston was born, the doctor informed his mother that he would have heart complications. Moments after Briston was born, he was diagnosed Atrial Septal Defect – a common term for a hole in the heart.
“We appreciate that the whole family is included, so his siblings do not feel left beyond.”
In addition to heart complications, Briston suffers from Alopecia. Although Alopecia is not painful, it causes greater emotional devastation due to his hair loss, which unfortunately leads to bullying.
