Leo was diagnosed with Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome (CCHS). In 2015, at age 5, he was implanted with the Avery Diaphragm Pacing system. Prior to implantation, Leo’s activities were limited. With the Avery System, he can comfortably and securely travel with his family. He just recently returned from a trip to Vietnam and Thailand!
When asked about their vacation, his mother stated, “We had such an amazing time with Leo visiting both countries and taking him on unique adventures that would not have been possible without the Avery Diaphragm Pacemaker! We are proud to promote Avery Pacemakers, with which everything is possible, and which helped our dreams to come true.”
