FORT COLLINS, CO
Kalysta is a strong, loving, sassy 8 year old. She is currently in the 3rd grade and absolutely loves school and her friends! She loves English Bulldogs and fashion.
Kalysta was born May 1st 2013. She was Born with a cleft palate and diagnosed a few short hours after her birth with Pierre Robin Sequence. PRS is a rare congenital birth defect characterized by an underdeveloped jaw, backward displacement of the tongue and upper airway obstruction. Cleft Palate is also commonly present in children with PRS.
Kalysta had her first surgery to repair her palate when she was 1 years old. Kalysta had over 5 years of speech therapy, hearing tests along with multiple procedures and visits to our team of doctors at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Her second palate repair was completed at age 6 with a very long and hard recovery. Kalysta is currently only seen for follow up visits as we wait to see if the most recent repair grows with her palate. We do know there are surgeries in the future and lots of orthodontia work as well. As we wait Kalysta makes the most of the difficult road that she was given but whatever is thrown her way, Kalysta always comes out smiling!
