He’s only 13 years old but Cohyn Wells of Moose Jaw has already had 17 surgeries, with the first taking place when he was less than 24 hours old. Cohyn was born with Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus and a structural defect in the part of the brain that controls balance. Cohyn has also since developed a rare progressive disease that affects his spinal cord. Every one of his surgeries has been accompanied by a lengthy hospital stay and recovery period.
Even though he’s spent roughly 150 days in hospital, his medical conditions rarely slow Cohyn down for long. He’s thrilled that his next surgery at Saskatchewan’s new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital will be in a place built to make kids like him feel, safe, happy and at home.
