Meet Steve: 2017 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero
Excerpted from Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Blog
When Steve’s mom, Molly, was 20 weeks pregnant, her OB/GYN discovered abnormalities in Steve’s heart. He immediately referred Molly to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, where she and her husband Matt discovered Steve would be born with five different congenital heart defects — an unusual and difficult diagnosis.
“Our own hearts were breaking as we discovered our son’s special heart,” says Molly. But the doctors and specialists at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin monitored Molly closely, kept the family informed and offered hope and encouragement.
