2016 Speak Now For Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero: Kenneth

rsz_arkansas_childrens_hospital_allen_kenneth_photo.jpgKenneth and his triplet sisters were born premature at just 25-weeks-old. He only weighed 1lb, 10.5 ounces, and unfortunately he suffered severe brain damage. Kenneth’s parents were informed shortly after his birth that it was likely Kenneth would never walk, talk or breathe on his own. That said, the medical staff at Arkansas Children’s Hospital did not let this prognosis stop them from giving Kenneth the chance at life that every child deserves. After spending 315 days in Arkansas Children’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Kenneth was able to go home.
