I have a nephew who has Eagle-Barrett syndrome. I am interested in finding out what causes this to happen to babies, and surgical procedures that could fix some of the damage caused by this. Because of my nephew, I want to be involved in some way to help facilitate more research to find out the causes of this syndrome, and how to prevent it.
