Layla & Lisa Shook, Apert's Syndrome

CHS Healthcare Science students welcomed Lisa and Layla Shook on Friday, October 16, 2015. Layla was born with a rare condition known as Apert's Syndrome. Her mother, Lisa educated our students on Apert's and even gave students a glimpse of Layla's feeding tube, and little "webbed" toes. To date, Layla has undergone 54 surgeries in her 3 years of life. Layla is a sweet, fun-loving, vibrant little girl whom faculty and students grew to love quick. Layla is also 1 of 130 documented cases of "cloverleaf skull". Layla and her Craniofacial Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon have appeared on the "Doctors" show twice notating techniques used to repair her skull. If you would like to learn more and/or follow Layla, I have attached links below.
