You help kids like Jordynn
"She’ll never walk or talk." That’s what doctors at a local hospital told mom-to-be Amy during her 18-week ultrasound. She was a mess, but knew she and her baby would fight together.
Her pregnancy was complicated and high-risk. So was Jordynn's delivery. Amy needed answers. She turned to Boston Children's, the one hospital that's cured more childhood diseases than any other.
Just 15 days old, Jordynn needed expert care for her rare, genetic disorder, plus many secondary conditions. A team of more than 10 Boston Children's specialists stepped in. Now 10, Jordynn has undergone 36 surgeries and frequently comes to Boston Children's. She has more surgeries ahead, but her mom is hopeful she'll have a successful future thanks to the care she receives.
She's already successful in the present. Jordynn not only walks and talks, she dances and sings. Her life is full of activities she loves: painting, drawing, singing, drumming and riding her bike.
