Area Child Battling Cerebral Plasy

By Angela Cummings / Special to The Journal August 17, 2009

MARTINSBURG — Two years ago, the Kee family had never heard of a little town in Mexico called Nuevo Progresso, so obviously they didn’t know what a great role it would play in their lives. Brodie Kee, 20 months old, made his trip to Nuevo Progresso when he was only 14 months old. This wasn’t a vacation to see the sights of Mexico, but a visit to a clinic called the International Stem Cell Institute.

“I had the perfect pregnancy. Nothing was wrong,” said 20-year-old Kayla Kee, Brodie’s mother. But two weeks before her due date, she became very ill and started having severe contractions. She noticed Brodie hadn’t been moving as much as usual. The pain was so severe she decided to go to the emergency room, and after a through examination, her doctors at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown decided she needed an emergency Caesarean section because the baby’s heart rate was extremely slow. When he was born, Brodie wasn’t breathing. Brodie’s father, 22-year-old Adam Kee, said it took eight minutes to revive him.

The doctor’s recommended Brodie be immediately flown to Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C., for a treatment called “total body cooling.” According to the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, body cooling is a procedure used to protect against brain injury in full-term infants born with birth asphyxia. The hope of body cooling is that it will increase the infant’s chances for survival and possibly decrease the severity of neurological disability.
