“I can’t praise the hospital or staff enough. I feel so blessed that my daughter is able to receive treatment here. Every touch point blew my mind, everyone was so caring and everything seemed so thought out. I strongly recommend this hospital, and have been encouraging anyone that will listen to donate to the hospital. I can’t say thank you enough!”

Shortly after Giovanni was born at a Southern California hospital, nurses noticed he had a rare abnormality. They fed him and his stomach swelled up and remained distended.  Further examination revealed that Giovanni had an anorectal malformation that occurs in roughly 1 in 5,000 births. His colon did not develop in the right location, making it impossible for Giovanni to have a normal bowel movement.
