Monroe boy celebrates miracle birthday

MONROE, Conn. (WTNH) — Anthony Katz wasn’t supposed to live past his first year. On Saturday, he turned 13. And hundreds came out to celebrate.

“It’s a miracle,” said Anthony’s father Douglas. “We have a party for him, a celebration, every year.”

Katz was born with a called myotubular myopathy, a rare form of muscular dystrophy.
