When Baby Rex was born in October 2018, he faced some serious health issues. Born with hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid on the brain, he spent the first three weeks of his life in the NICU. But then things improved dramatically, according to his aunt, Jessica Castresana. He lived most of the remainder of his 14-month life without any symptoms. That was until Dec. 28, 2019, when he suddenly passed away. The family was devastated, but are taking solace in the fact that their loss was able to provide a miracle to five other families.
