LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A Little Rock family is asking for help with a costly procedure for their baby boy. To get it, they'll need go all the way to Mexico.
It's just another Friday in the Davis house. Hadlee Rogers and Haven Davis spend their Spring Break doing one of their favorite things, playing with their baby brother Hayes. But parents Rebekah and Wade Davis see the challenges that lie behind their smiles.
"He has milomaningacell, which is the worst kind of spina bifida," said Rebekah Davis, referring to her 11-month-old son Hayes. "And that is when there is a hole in the spine and there's nerves protruding from the spine."
Just two days after his birth, Hayes had surgery to close the hole in his spine, but his doctors weren't too hopeful that he'd ever be able to walk.
