Curtis Zy-Keith Means, born on July 5, 2020, at just 21 weeks and 1 day gestation, has defied overwhelming odds to celebrate his fourth birthday as the most premature baby ever recorded.

Weighing a mere 420 grams (14.8 ounces), equivalent to the weight of an American football, Curtis faced less than a 1% chance of survival at birth.

Born alongside his twin sister C’Aysa, tragically lost, Curtis spent his initial nine months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Hospital.

Today, Curtis weighs 33 pounds (14.9 kilograms) and enjoys playing with toys, watching Mickey Mouse cartoons, and chatting on his mom’s phone.

His journey, marked by significant medical interventions including ventilator support and medications for heart and lung functions, highlights his remarkable resilience and the dedicated care of medical professionals.

Michelle Butler, Curtis’s mother, expressed immense pride in her son’s progress, reflecting on the challenging early days when his survival seemed uncertain.  Curtis, now a Guinness World Records holder for his prematurity, continues to inspire with his ongoing growth and development, embodying a story of hope and perseverance against formidable odds.
