Children’s Miracle Network Spotlight: Gianna, Age 9

_gianna spotlight

Imagine yourself as expectant parents and looking forward to your new child. Manitobans Tes and Phil thought it was a healthy pregnancy until Tes felt something wasn’t right. Tes learned she had preeclampsia, a condition where her blood pressure was extremely high, which led to the premature birth of her daughter, Gianna, at just 27 weeks. Gianna was just over one pound and had severe heart and lung problems, requiring numerous life-saving surgeries. She was in the neo-natal intensive care unit at the Childrens Hospital for seven months. Today, because of your support, Gianna is a spunky nine-year-old who is learning to play the guitar. Your funds work to purchase specialized equipment like the Giraffe OmniBed for premature babies. The OmniBed is a fully equipped specialized incubator and monitoring system that is home to more than 700 babies who come to the Children’s Hospital each year. The cost of each bed is $70,000 but they save lives and speed up treatment and recovery times, giving kids the childhoods they deserve.
