Kason and Nurse Kayla
Published Sept. 29, 2023

Kason was born with an extremely rare chromosomal deletion and spent the first 6 months of his life in the hospital. His unique condition brought a lot of uncertainty for Kason and his parents. But with the help of Aveanna Nurse Kayla, he is now thriving at home, living a life just as amazing and unique as he is!

Kayla and Kason recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of the day they met. A year ago, Kason wasn’t so sure about Nurse Kayla. “Kason is wary of new people,” his mom explains. “When they first met, he was giving her suspicious looks. But just one month in, he started to trust her, and their connection has only gotten stronger since then. Now he gives the sweetest looks just for Kayla.”

Kason isn’t the only one who connected with Nurse Kayla. “Our Aveanna team found Kayla and immediately knew she was the perfect fit for our whole family,” Kason’s mom recalls. “She has made my life so much easier and is an incredible support. She is always kind, always there to help.”

“Parenting a disabled child can be overwhelming,” Kason’s mom admits. “But it gets easier when you have the right support. Kayla helps us in so many ways and makes it less overwhelming because we know Kason is safe with her.”

Kason’s life started with many unknowns. But one thing we know for sure is that he loves having Nurse Kayla by his side! She provides the care he needs to celebrate his one-of-a-kind journey and enjoy every moment at home with his family.
