The Colorado Springs music community is coming together for a great cause this Saturday night to raise money for the Tryon family. Jonah Tryon, 6-month-old son of Brian and Jolene Tryon, was born with a condition called "benign positional molding" that is causing malformation of his skull.
"His skull in the back is flattened and it has pushed his skull forward," said Brian Tryon, a well-known bartender and longtime friend of the local music scene.
Originally the family had been told that Jonah had craniosyntosis, a condition that causes premature fusing of certain sutures in the skull and would have required many expensive surgeries.
The Tryons were relieved to learn recently that Jonah can be treated with cranial massage therapy to manipulate the skull so it can grow normally, but their Medicaid coverage likely won't pay for the treatments.
Organized by Bart Castleberry, Tryon's co-worker at the Hearthstone Inn, and friend Timothy Fairfull, all proceeds from the show and silent auction will go to the Tryon Family. Brian Tryon also noted that if any funds remain after the treatments are paid for, they will be donated to the Pediatric Neurosurgery ward at the Children's Hospital in Denver.
