Meet a few of our miracles whose stories will be shared on-air
Last fall, Raynah, then 11, was suffering from a mild headache, fever and strep throat, so she stayed home from school. Her mom, an intensive care nurse, came in her room to check on her, and Raynah was sitting frozen on her bed unable to walk or talk. Her mom feared she’d had a stroke. Raynah was transported to Children’s Wisconsin, where doctors diagnosed her with a rare and potentially catastrophic brain infection. Raynah spent 46 days in the hospital. Hear her story and learn about the novel treatments and medical care that saved her life on Giving Tuesday: Holiday of Miracles, Tuesday, December 1 on 96.5 WKLH.
When she was a baby, Rylann’s parents noticed she didn’t always react to sounds around her — like barking dogs and banging pans. Rylann was tested and found to have profound hearing loss. One day after her first birthday, she had cochlear implant surgery in both ears. The surgery was successful, and she has continued to thrive thanks to the ongoing care provided her entire family by the Masters Family Speech and Hearing Center. Hear from her family in their own words the difference Children’s Wisconsin has made in their lives on Giving Tuesday: A Holiday of Miracles, Tuesday, December 1 on 96.5 WKLH.
Juan Pablo was two years old when he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. He underwent five rounds of chemotherapy over a course of eight months. Each round required long inpatient stays, and he spent a total of 153 days in the hospital. Last New Year’s Eve, he rang the bell in the MACC Fund Center, signifying the end of his successful treatment. Hear from this adorable four-year-old and his grateful family on Giving Tuesday: A Holiday of Miracles, Tuesday, December 1 on 96.5 WKLH.
Royalty, 15, has lived with sickle cell her entire life. It’s a diagnosis she shares with her mom, who was also a Children’s Wisconsin patient as a child. Living with this serious chronic disease can be tiring during the best of times and severely painful during the worst. But frequent visits to Children’s Wisconsin have done little to tamper Royalty’s energy and positive spirit, which are evident as she and her mom share their story on Giving Tuesday: A Holiday of Miracles, Tuesday, December 1 on 96.5 WKLH.
In addition to graduating from high school last June, Ethan had a liver transplant. His Children’s Wisconsin story, however, began when he was diagnosed with biliary atresia as a baby. Even though Ethan has been a lifelong patient, his parents credit his care providers with providing them the support and tools needed for Ethan to lead a normal, active life. Hear more about Ethan’s lifelong journey and his future plans that were inspired by his Children’s experience on Giving Tuesday: A Holiday of Miracles, Tuesday, December 1 on 96.5 WKLH.
