André's Craniosynostosis Journey from Brazil 

André is a sweet Brazilian baby boy who was born with a serious health condition affecting his skull called craniosynostosis, which required surgery before he was one year old.

Now, André can grow up like any other toddler — without the fear sustaining serious brain injuries from everyday activities.
