Testimonials

When Elizabeth “Lizzie” Debowsky was only 7 years old, she began experiencing a sudden pain in her hip. Her parents Shari and Stuart immediately worried when the pain became so severe it was affecting her ability to walk. "Although Lizzie takes dance classes, she has never been injured. All of a sudden, she began limping out of nowhere, and was complaining of pain in her hip. I did not want to let it go very long so we decided to get evaluated by her doctor," said Shari.

Three days in the hospital, 44 medical appointments, numerous X-rays and ultrasounds, two urinalyses, three blood draws, a salivagram and a swallow study. This was the medical agenda for baby Julen in May 2019, the last full month he was able to be mostly at home with his family. After that, the little boy’s condition deteriorated and he was hospitalized for most of the rest of his days.

After a normal full-term pregnancy with no complications, Shenequa gave birth to Ayden via C-section in May 2017 in the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Shortly after, the baby's pediatrician detected a murmur, but with no pediatric cardiologist on the island, Ayden was airlifted to Nicklaus Children's Hospital.

Brenden was only days old when he was diagnosed with a hole in his heart. His parents traveled all the way from Naples on the West Coast of Florida to plan for his surgery with the Heart Program at Nicklaus Children's Hospital.
