99 Balloons: A Tribute to Eliot - Video

Aired on 10/28/2008 | CC
Two months before he was born, Eliot was diagnosed with Trisomy 18—a genetic disorder with a very low survival rate. His parents, Matt and Ginny, began writing letters to him daily. Eliot lived 99 precious days, and his parents kept writing. After his death, they turned their letters and photos of Eliot into a video that has now been seen nearly a million times on YouTube.
