Jamie Holmes

Patient Leader

I was born with a rare disorder known as VATER. Syndrome, which stands for congenital abnormalities of the vertebrae, lower intestine ,trachea, esophagus and kidneys. I was born with abnormalities in all of those areas. I have had over 45+ surgeries and/or medical procedures since my birth, including surgeries to reconstruct my esophagus, trachea, and lower intestine , and to fuse several vertebrae in my spine. One of my kidneys disintegrated and my remaining kidney does not fully function.. This is main reason for founding Jamie's Dream Team. http://jamiesdreamteam.myfastsite.net/about/meet-jamie/
