Dana Leggett is the mother of James Leggett.
Dana's son, James, was born with crouzon syndrome, a genetic condition that caused his skull bones to fuse before they should have. James was a patient of Mark Sloan. Mark and Derek Shepherd did James' first cranial expansion. In total, Mark operated on James five times to give him a more normal appearance.
Mark initially planned for James's final surgery just to move his upper jaw forward. However, Jackson's plan involved his entire mid-face being moved forward in a single block. Above Arizona and Derek's objections, Jackson proceeded with the surgery.
Her son, James Leggett, has Crouzon Syndrome and had had several surgeries to make his face appear more normal.
