"It takes a village ... and All Children's is part of our village," Jack's mom says with a grateful smile. Just hours after his birth, Jack was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and within his first few days, required emergency surgery at the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for a blockage in his stomach. Jack had a team of primary nurses who immediately bonded with the family to help them through.
Now four years old, and doing much better, Jack still attends weekly therapy at Johns Hopkins All Children's Child Development and Rehabilitation Center. He has a little brother and another sibling on the way.
