After birth, the participant spent time in the NICU due to jaundice, abnormal labs, and heart abnormalities (vascular ring, right aortic arch). The heart differences were surgically corrected. As a child, he was identified to have a mass on the right side of the neck, which was later determined to be abnormal thymus tissue (ectopic thymus tissue). The participant also currently experiences asthma, gastroesophageal reflux, shortening of hamstring muscles (hamstring contractures), and curvature of the spine (kyphosis).
