“That baby is pure love and a miracle,” Lockport resident Deloris Calcaterra said of her grandson Ryder. 

Ryder Fox was born on July 30.  Before turning two weeks old, Fox had undergone intense heart surgery. His mother, Calcaterra’s daughter, Missy Norton discovered at 23 weeks pregnant that her then unborn son had a heart defect. The defect is called double outlet right ventricle.
