Help us support the Harvey E. Beardmore Division of Pediatric Surgery

During the second trimester of our twin pregnancy, we were given the news that something was not quite right. Our daughter had an intestinal atresia- her small bowels were completely obstructed. For the remainder of the pregnancy, we were followed closely by the Harvey E. Beardmore Division of Pediatric Surgery team, and progression was reviewed weekly. The months that followed were filled with fear, uncertainty and worry, but there was also so much reassurance that our daughter would be in good hands. We did not know why this happened to our baby, the type of surgery she would need, what the recovery would be or what kind of life she would lead afterwards. Yet we were comforted knowing the surgical team was with us every step of the way. The surgical team would be ready and waiting the moment she and her brother were born. Within minutes of being born, Annabella was whisked away to run tests, and within her first few hours of life, she was having major surgery. A large portion of her small non-functional bowels were successfully removed and the prognosis was good.

Annabella would spend the first month of her life in the NICU, away from her twin brother, parents and older brother. The surgical team followed her progress and soon enough, she was eating normally and was discharged.

We will be forever grateful for the expertise, knowledge and care the Harvey E. Beardmore Division of Pediatric Surgery team gave Annabella and our family. Annabella is one year old now and is living a normal, mischievous life with her twin.

We can never thank the pediatric surgery team enough, and we can only pray that all children born with conditions requiring surgery receive the same level of care.

Please help us raise funds to support the excellent and skillful work of the Harvey E. Beardmore Division of Pediatric Surgery team. Funds will be used to establish multidisciplinary clinics and provide specialized training for professionals. All children and families deserve state-of-the-art clinical care, and these donations can help the Harvey E. Beardmore Division of Pediatric Surgery team achieve that mission.
