Good News: Indianapolis Doctors Perform Intensive Surgery on Boy for Free

Two Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital surgeons recently gave one little boy a new skull and a new life, free of charge. The Pettelliers were busy conducting theological mission work in Zimbabwe when they noticed something was wrong with their youngest son, Liam. They discovered the 2-year-old suffered from craniosyntosis, a rare skull deformation that requires intense reconstructive surgery. South African doctors were unable to perform the operation so the family looked to St. Vincent pediatric surgeons to help Liam. Drs. Jason Blockson and Ronald Young were able to not only complete the procedure with success, but also wrote off all bills so the surgery was at no cost to the family.
