Review for Military Health Foundation, San Francisco, CA, USA
Mason, was born August 3, 2015, at a whopping 9lbs 1oz, he was the most beautiful baby boy. Because of his size, the doctors believe he ran out of room sooner than anticipated, causing him to sit lower en utero for a longer period of time. Because of this, Mason was born with Torticollis. This is a rare condition in which the neck muscles contract, causing the head to twist to one side. we were told to do neck stretches to try to treat the stiffness, and after about 4 months he was able to move his head freely to both sides with ease. However, while he was going through the treatment, he favored laying down with his head facing the right side. This has now caused another condition called Plagiocephaly, which is flattening of the head. Mason now needed a DOC band, to help correct his head shape. As of right now, his flat spot is causing his right ear, jaw and part of his skull to move forward, which can cause problems later on in life. It can even affect his eyesight.
This organization was able to get us the needed funds to cover his cranial helmet in only a few weeks, we are so grateful for their help and Mason is doing so much better now.
