An LTV Patient Story....      Austin Weiss


Austin was born two and a half months premature in November of 1998 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He was in the hospital for the first several months of this life and was even placed in an iron lung. After finally being released, he was back in the hospital five times in his first year. A muscle biopsy eventually diagnosed him with Congenital Muscular Dystrophy. In October of 1999, he was placed on the LTV 1000 and has not been back in the hospital since! His mother states that the LTV has changed their lives and has afforded Austin and the family maximum mobility.
