We have the privilege of working with some amazing kids that are cared for right here at KU Medical Center Pediatrics. They have been through extraordinary medical trials and triumphs so young in life and we wanted to give our community a greater understanding of what they face every day. We will introduce one of our Miracle Kids every few weeks so you can see firsthand the diversity of treatments provided so they can live happier and healthier lives.
Melody was born six weeks early, weighing just 3lbs, 11oz with not one but TWO holes in her heart!
She had Ventricular Septal Defect and ended up having to undergo open heart surgery at 8 months old to patch each hole because they did not close naturally.
Today, Melody is a normal 7-year old. She loves to sing, dance and do crafts. She has regular check-ups at KU Medical Center for a residual VDS. She is a true miracle!
Panda Express will be holding Percentage Nights at their locations in the Kansas City area every month for the rest of the year.
A percentage of ANYTHING you order will support KU Medial Center Pediatrics.
