Noah Frank Campo was born on September 12, 2017 to Robert and Karly Campo. Fresh into life Noah was taken to Children’s Hospital of New Orleans to repair a Tracheal Esophageal Fistula and Esophageal Atresia(TEF/EA).In mid December, Noah was admitted to Ochsner Hospital with breath complications. The Doctors determined that Noah was suffering from tracheomalacia, which causes the collapse of the trachea during times of increased airflow, usually during times of crying, feeding, or coughing. The doctors suggested that Noah could be a candidate for a surgery that could potentially fix his tracheomalacia. The surgery would have to be performed at Boston Children’s Hospital because it is the only medical institution that performs this surgery. After various delays Noah was flown via Medivac from New Orleans, LA to Boston, MA.
After a few test, the surgery, named posterior tracheopexy, was to be performed on the 16th of January. That morning, Noah went under and the surgery went well. Now, Robert and Karly are waiting on the results of how the surgery went and Noah may have to stay for additional surgery.
In the midst of these events, Robert and Karly are left in an unfamiliar city, 1500 miles from home, with no incomes. All proceeds will go to Noah and his family for medical and living expenses. We would like to thank everyone in advance for their contributions and will keep this page updated on Noah’s state. #campostrong⚓️
