2016 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero: Kayleigh

rsz_mt_washington_pediatric_hospital_klatt_kayleigh_photo.jpgKayleigh was born 14 weeks early at Mercy Medical Center, the 24th smallest baby ever born in the US. At 4 ½-months-old, she was transferred to the intensive care unit at the University of Maryland Medical Center, and was finally moved to Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH) when she was 8 months of age for long-term rehabilitation. Using the hospital’s simulation lab, Kayleigh’s parents were taught how to care for their daughter with special needs, preparation they needed as they prepared to take her home.
