Patrick is definitely a Strong Kid! Patrick was born with an omphalocele and heart defect.
Patrick spent over 5 weeks at Golisano Children’s Hospital. He had his omphalocele repaired a few days after birth. He then had open-heart surgery at 9 days old to repair an interrupted aortic arch.
We are so grateful for the teams at GCH - the nurses, respiratory therapists, and doctors in the NICU, the PCCC, and the 8th floor. We also received so much support from Child Life and Social Work and beyond. Every person we came in contact with was incredibly supportive and caring.
The annual Stroll for Strong Kids Walk and 5K Run will be held on June 4, 2023, where Golisano Children's Hospital supporters will enjoy a family-friendly atmosphere full of activities. Join our team by walking with us that day or by clicking on the "Donate Now" button!
