Miracle came to CDTC when she was 24 weeks-old. She left the NICU with a g-tube to ensure she would get the fluid and calories she needed to grow. She also had deformities in her feet.
She received early intervention services through the Early Steps program and is currently enrolled in our ECHO program and receives Health Education and Medical Case Management as part of our Patient Centered Medical Home.
She has come so very far in her short four and a half years. Miracle’s g-tube has been removed. She’s eating well on her own. Her bubbly personality, quick speed and growing height certainly attest to lots of energy.
Her CDTC care team, lead by Dr. La France, has also been helping to address her feet deformities. Miracle’s been through several surgeries to correct their position. She recently had surgery on her hip and was in a body cast for several weeks. She is now walking with a cool purple walker and getting physical therapy. Miracle is resilient. She’s a fighter and very strong willed. And, it’s guaranteed this vibrant little girl will always be smiling, happy and very talkative!

A trip to our Clinic is more than just a doctor’s visit to a child with special healthcare needs.
But, insurance doesn’t cover everything. That’s why your gift is so important.
