Keagan Sullivan weighed just 1 pound, 8 ounces when he was born Sept. 7, 2011. He spent the first 30 months of his life tethered to hospital machines that helped him breathe and kept him alive.
Keagan is now 4 ½ and the hope was that as Keagan got bigger, he would outgrow his lung diseases by growing new lung tissue. Unfortunately, his lung growth has not made much improvement, so Keagan will undergo a double lung transplant evaluation at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
The Sullivan family’s goal for Keagan is to have a better quality of life. They want to see him grow and play with his sister without getting tangled in the tubes and machines working to help him breath. They want him to go to school and make friends and learn and grow. He needs your help!
