Meet Chayce~Little Grape
"Since being born premature in 2006, little Chayce has been a trooper. Originally from California, Chayce and his family were no strangers to their local hospital. Having been placed on a feeding tube by the age of 16-months to correct acid reflux, he continued to experience eating and feeding problems. Eventually, the family moved to South Dakota where a routine check-up at Avera Children’s led to a whirlwind of tests and procedures. Chayce initially complained of stomach pain but went on to have seizures; requiring emergency medical services. Thankfully, they were in the right place at the right time. Today, despite multiple tests and procedures, Chayce continues to experience issues with his stomach and esophagus but is making progress thanks to the care at Avera Children’s."
