Meet The Kids

Meet The Kids
Evie was born with a rare birth defect that made it impossible for her to breathe on her own. With a 1% chance of survival, Evie spent 10 months in the Children’s Colorado NICU and underwent several surgeries and procedures. “They celebrated and cried with us. They were there when we needed them most. They saved our daughter’s life, and we couldn’t be more grateful,” said Salem, Evie’s mom.

Since then, Evie has celebrated many milestones – like saying her first words and learning to walk. But last year, she hit one of her biggest milestones yet: Her lungs became strong enough for her to breathe on her own for the first time.

Armando had a transformative experience at Burn Camp, a week-long overnight camp for kid and teen burn survivors that is funded almost entirely by donors. Burn Camp helped him to build his confidence and know he is not alone after his left hand had to be amputated due to a firecracker accident. “The team at Children’s Colorado took care of our whole family to help us process something no one ever wants to face,” said Esmeralda, Armando’s mom.

Armando is now learning to use his new “myoelectric” prosthetic arm, which is controlled by his own muscles.

Meet The Kids
Hunter was diagnosed with a severe form of scoliosis that was threatening to paralyze him before his 4th birthday. Our orthopedic and neurosurgery experts performed a complex spinal fusion surgery on Hunter, one they’d meticulously planned using a 3D model of his tiny spine.

Today, the sky’s the limit for Hunter. “He’s a little boy, and he’s climbing all over stuff and he’s just having a blast,” said Jeff, Hunter’s dad. Hunter will be celebrating his first full year without a surgery next month.

Meet the Kids
Chloe has struggled with crippling anxiety and depression for much of her life. After her brother died by suicide, Chloe entered an inpatient treatment program at the Pediatric Mental Health Institute at Children’s Colorado. “Children’s Colorado gave me the skills necessary to manage my depression and anxiety while simultaneously teaching my parents how to best support me,” said Chloe.

Chloe is now in her first year of college studying psychology.
