    A New Heart for a High School Student

    Tameka was starting her senior year of high school and considering a career in medicine. But she was losing a lot of weight and felt cold and tired all the time.

    Doctors made an alarming discovery: Her heart was beating way too fast due to a rare condition called restrictive cardiomyopathy, which was causing other problems. Medication didn’t help. She would need a heart transplant.

    While Tameka waited for her new heart, a Children's Hospital teacher helped her keep up with schoolwork. Just before Christmas, Tameka got her new heart. She immediately felt better, and a few weeks later she left the hospital. She's now in college and hopes to become a nurse practitioner.

  • It made a huge difference. They really cared, not just about the medical outcome but how we were all doing.

    Born at 26 Weeks: A Family's NICU Story

    Sam DeBoer came into the world 14 weeks early, weighing just one pound two ounces. His lungs weren't fully developed, he had to be fed through a tube and he couldn't maintain his body temperature.

    Sam's parents, Laura and Chris, felt helpless as they watched the neonatal ICU (NICU) team care for their tiny son. But Laura was able to give her son one thing: Breast milk. She pumped every 2-3 hours in the NICU's nearby lactation room, and Sam's nurses put the milk in his feeding tube.

    After 94 days, Sam went home. Today he's a healthy 3-year-old who loves playing with toy trucks and tractors.
