UroMed Hometown Hero – Jamie Holmes Part 1 – Originally Posted DECEMBER 6, 2011

Hi, my name is Jamie Holmes. I’m 24-years old and live with a condition called V.A.T.E.R. Syndrome, which was diagnosed in utero. I have endured over 42 surgeries in my life, with the surgeries starting at the time of my birth, to reconstruct my esophagus, trachea and lower intestine and to fuse several vertebrae in my spine. Presently, one of my kidneys has disintegrated, and my remaining kidney doesn’t fully function.

V.A.T.E.R Syndrome is a congenital birth defect that triggered anomalies to my vertebrae, urinary tract, bowels, trachea and esophagus. So, I was pretty messed-up medically. V.A.T.E.R Syndrome affected almost everything in my body but my big toe. To learn more about V.A.T.E.R Syndrome, you can Google this birth defect on the internet. You’ll see that V.A.T.E.R stands for vertebrae, anus, trachea, esophagus and renal – all areas affected by this syndrome.
