Doctor Rebuilds Child’s Voice Box in Historic Surgery
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two-year-old Cooper Kilburn was born without a natural way to talk or even breathe. Now, with a doctor's help, he can do both. Cooper's mom and dad, Brooke and Brad Kilburn, got into a bad car accident when she was 16 weeks pregnant with him. An ultrasound from her doctor in Adamsville, Tennessee revealed something was wrong with Cooper's airway, but her doctor wasn't sure what it was and he sure didn't know how to fix it.
