Next Participant Selected
Clayton Beabout, age 11 has been selected as the second participant, to create a film through Make A Film Foundation
with generous support and funding from Make-A-Wish who will underwrite
Clayton has Vater's Syndrome.
The initials in V.A.T.E.R. syndrome refer to five different areas in which a child may have abnormalities: V
sophagus, and R
enal (kidneys). There may also be cardiac and limb conditions, which changes the acronym to V.A.C.T.E.R.L. A child diagnosed with one of these syndromes will not necessarily have a problem in every area, but a constellation of birth defects involving many of the areas. There is no currently known cause, but a gene defect is believed to be involved.
Clayton's wish is to be an actor and to star in his own short film.
We are super excited to help him achieve his dream.
