Kasey, Kevin and Kyle were born with more than the genetic trait that made them identical triplets. They were also born with the same potentially fatal, congential heart defect known as tetralogy of the fallot. University of Florida physicians worked closely with the community physicians who delivered and initially diagnosed the condition of the boys. Kasey, Kevin and Kyle were airlifted to Shands Children’s Hospital where the process to stabilize their condition and correct their heart defects was started immediately by a comprehensive team of pediatric cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and neonatologists. Today and several surgeries later, the boys are thriving and celebrating each day with all the vigor and joy of healthy children.
