Meet Emily M.
Diagnosis: Omphalocele, restrictive lung disease, scoliosis, thoracic insufficiency syndrome
Services used: Respiratory, specialized nutrition
Emily was born with an omphalocele and a small thorax. Combined with the curvature of her spine, she didn’t have enough room to breathe or eat.
Today, Emily has been weaned off her vent, had her trach removed and can do almost everything other kids do – including eating pizza.
“You would never imagine that she has gone through what she has. She is just a normal girl.”
- Janita, Emily's Mom
