Halloween is the time of year for kids to get dressed up and collect tons of candy. But one little boy almost missed out on trick or treating because he was scheduled to have a very necessary surgery.
According to the NY Post, a 4-year-old named Sonny Mead from Edwardsville, Illinois was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis, which causes the skull bones to fuse prematurely, impacting brain growth. He is scheduled to have surgery today and the recovery time is 2-6 months, which meant he would not be able to go trick or treating.
