According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “Encephalocele is described as a sac – like protrusion or projection of the brain and the membranes that cover it come through an opening in the skull. Encephalocele happens when the neural tube does not close completely during pregnancy.”

There are lots of operations Ollie Trezise needs to undergo in the future.

He needs to be operated to help him breathe and open his nasal passageway. The surgery will prevent him from getting infections or meningitis.

Ollie underwent his first operation in November of 2014.

This Footage of an Angel Visiting a Dying Girl Will Make You Believe in Miracles

Dying teen miraculously survived after the angel showed up.

Chelsea Banton was born prematurely and with developmental disabilities. She has also been battling with serious health problems all her life. At a very young age, she had been hospitalized due to pneumonia, hydrocephalus, life-threatening viral infections, shunt revisions in the skull, and fluid retention. When she reached 14, she suffered from pneumonia again, but the infection was so severe that it left her on the brink of death.

The infection had spread from one lung to the other. She later had sepsis, blood clots, staph infections, E. coli, atelectasis, and feeding problems. Chelsea spent seven weeks in the hospital on life support. Every time the doctors tried to take her off of the ventilator, she struggled for her breath. The doctors knew that she wouldn’t survive. It was heartbreaking for Colleen, her mother, but she decided to turn off her life support and let nature take its course.
