Nathan Byrne has defied some of the most incredible odds stacked against him.

When his mother Lesley was nine hours deep into labor, the tiny tot’s heart rate dropped dramatically as hospital staff raced to save him.

After successfully resuscitating the newborn, it would take four more days until he would be diagnosed with a rare condition called Tetralogy of Fallot.

Nathan had a large hole in his heart and a multitude of health issues that caused him to have to rely on machines to stay alive.

Because he was too small to have the life-saving surgery performed, Nathan had to wait an extended period.

But when the time came for the surgery, Nathan proved he was the ultimate warrior.

After the surgery, his heart was too swollen to be placed back into his chest so his chest remained open for a week until the swelling went down.

His recovery process has been filled with challenges every step of the way. But throughout it all, his parents always kept their faith that their son would survive.
