Meet Evan B.: 2017 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero

Evan is an inspiring and adventurous first-grader who has spent an aggregate of two and a half years of his life in the hospital. His mother, Alison, remembers  going into her 23-week ultrasound eager to see the baby’s fingers and toes. Her doctors, however, returned with some critical news — Evan had kidney failure and was not producing amniotic fluid. Without amniotic fluid, Evan would be unable to develop lungs. Without lungs, it would be impossible for Evan to survive. Alison asked the doctor if she should pray for a miracle, and he responded frankly: “there is no miracle. Your child has zero percent chance of survival outside of the womb.”
