 A Video Thank You from Baby Seth's Parents

Tim and Becky Petreikis, parents of Seth Petreikis, have posted a video thanking NBC Chicago viewers for their thoughts and prayers during their son's fight to stay alive.

Seth, 10-months, died May 22 in Durham, North Carolina, after struggling with a heart that didn't form properly, an immune system that never developed, and respiratory complications.

He suffered from Complete DiGeorge syndrome and was awaiting a thymus tissue transplant that may have allowed him to live a normal life. His airways, however, collapsed prior to the surgery.

"NBC Chicago, and viewers and friends throughout Chicagoland are whom gave Seth hope," said Tim Petreikis.
