“The care that we received at Children’s National – I can’t even put it into words. Each night, the nurses put a shirt I’d worn in Cannon’s isolette so he could have a piece of me when I left. They didn’t have to do that, but it meant so much to me.”
-Laurie, grateful parent of Cannon, who had open heart surgery at four days old
