Zaylan was diagnosed with congenital heart defect at the 20 week scan. After Zayaln was born they discovered his heart defect was more complex than first diagnosed and he underwent surgery through his groin at 2 days. At 4 days this resulted in him having a stroke. Zaylan has undergone 7 procedures to his heart, 3 of them open heart. He is currently recovering from open heart surgery, he’s 5 weeks post-op and is doing amazingly.
Zayaln has a zest for life, he is football crazy and does not miss a game. He starts football training for a local team in a few weeks and is hoping to make the team in September. Zaylan's heart defect and disability do not hold him back, he is truly amazing.
