Parade hosts special guest

With her police uniform on, Karalyn Kroeger was special guest rider with Officer Doug Conrad for the Keota Fun Days parade.

Kroeger was born with a complex congenital heart defect. She has a condition called Heterotaxy Syndrome, and among other health issues was born missing the atrial septum in her heart.

With a total of six surgeries, Kroeger currently uses a pace maker and has only one common valve between the atrium and ventricle.

Even with the health issues that she has, Kroeger is a happy and active girl that attends preschool and will attend Pre-K this Fall.

Kroeger came all of the way from Arizona in order to join in on the Keota Fun Days activities.
