Eric Seals Visual Journeys

Back in 2002 with a diseased heart at 2-years-old, Kaden Cook lay on the operating table sedated, waiting for his heart transplant. After months of recovery he went on to live a nice, normal life like many kids do; family events, sports & all the things that make being a kid fun!
Fast forward to 2015, Kaden is 14-years-old & fighting a new battle at the same hospital where he got his new heart, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Kaden has myofibrillar myopathy, a disease that attacks muscles in his body that can lead to respiratory problems & confinement to a wheelchair.
Back in 2002 Detroit Free Press reporter Jeff Seidel & I spent many months telling the story of Kaden & his family leading up to & through his heart transplant.
We recently spent time with them last week to update what has been going on as he begins this new fight.

I'm a photo & video journalist for the Detroit Free Press which over the past few years has become a place known for great video storytelling from talented video journalists with over 23 Michigan Emmy Awards, 4 National Emmy Awards & a Webby Award for best online sports video of Courtney Hawkins.

In May of 2008 I started shooting video features for the paper & have since been shooting short/long form video storytelling & projects.

    Nice altitude Eric! A couple freshly charged Anti-Fog Inserts in the housing should eliminate any fogging potential on future flights. Looking forward to the next video!
