When Bucky Covington’s daughter, Kennedy, was born, he thought she was perfect, but he noticed her arm was purple and thought it had gotten bruised during the delivery. Within a week, her arm turned red and began to swell.

Kennedy was diagnosed with infantile hemangioma, one of the most common types of congenital tumors that occur in children. OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton explains that hemangiomas are vascular malformations that affect tiny blood vessels, resulting in discoloration. They can be any size and can be found anywhere on the body. They usually get smaller and smaller and eventually disappear, but Dr. Ashton explains that larger hemangiomas can require treatment.

“When this first starts coming to the table, you are scared to death,” Bucky says. He says he was concerned that his daughter would be self-conscious about the condition as she grew older.

“You brought up such as an important part, which is, you know the self-conscious aspect of this, regardless of your age,” Dr. Ashton says, “because people look and then say, ‘What is that?’”

Bucky and his wife, Katherine, were referred to a specialist, who suggested a treatment option that could reduce the hemangioma.

ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains that Propranolol is an oral beta-blocker that typically is used to treat the heart to lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate.

Pediatric ear, nose and throat physician Dr. Steve Goudy explains that within weeks or months of beginning the medication, the hemangiomas will turn grey and slowly go away.

Bucky Covington will be appearing on an episode of the daytime medical talk show The Doctors TODAY, Friday February 27th, with his family to raise awareness about a cause that is very close to their hearts: the use of a heart medication to help with a rare form of birthmark requiring treatment. Bucky’s infant daughter Kennedy was diagnosed with Infantile Hemangiomas at 3 weeks old. After conferring with specialists, Bucky and fiancé Katherine decided that the best choice for their daughter would be to start a treatment process to reverse the advancing of the birthmark preventing permanent damage to the skin.

The singer will chat with Dr. Jen Ashton and Dr. Travis Stork about the positive results he and his family have seen in hopes of spreading the word of this unusual solution and help others who might be dealing with a similar situation.

This parenthood thing is pretty easy so far!”
