Patient Stories

Patient Stories: Alison Boyce

Antoinette's Story

"The most “abnormal” thing about my daughter is this weird piece of equipment that is constantly attached to her ear. It's called a cell phone and is just as much a part of her as the pink device that acts like her pancreas and keeps her alive."

Raven's Story

"I would never have thought that after taking my daughter to her pediatrician, I would hear, 'You need to take your child to Children's National right away.'"
