As for Brexton, he was born with what is known as Coarctation of the Aorta (COA), Double Outlet Right Ventricle (DORV), Double Outlet Left Atrium (DOLA), and Complete Atrioventricular Canal (CAVC) on top of having a leaky heart. As soon as he was born he only had a few seconds to be put on oxygen and prostaglandins (PGE) to stay alive!โ โ

Brexton is the boy whom CHOA said he only had 10% chance of survival. Brexton has had ๐ญ๐ฐ๐จ ๐จ๐ฉ๐ž๐ง ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ญ ๐จ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ฌ, and if all goes well, he will not undergo another until he is from 3 or 5 years old. โ โ

The family were even told that this little warrior might not be able to make it without a Berlin Heart or a heart transplant because of the complexity of his condition.
