My coworker's grandson has Trisomy 22. He has made remarkable improvements!! He still has a trach but he is getting stronger and bigger every day! He just celebrated his 3rd birthday!! Diana & Miguel, my prayers will include you and your beautiful Angelica. May all of God's blessing touch you. Happy Thanksgiving.

The whole medical community could take a lesson from hospice's compassion during very difficult times.

The other side to this is what a surprise to know that infants did not have access to these services...what really are we thinking in terms of how we treat our fellow human beings at the weakest times in their life.
