<strong>Peter</strong>

Peter

Children's Hospital Colorado patient


Peter has a condition that affects the shape of his head and face. As a result, he was born with extensive hearing loss and a cleft palate. This made it extremely difficult for him to eat and speak normally. After multiple surgeries and therapies at Children’s Hospital Colorado, Peter is now thriving. Known for his kind heart, Peter dreams of becoming a teacher or police officer when he grows up.

<strong>Evie</strong>

Evie

Children's Hospital Colorado patient


During a prenatal visit, Evie’s parents learned their baby girl had a rare birth defect: a large opening in her abdominal wall causing internal organs to grow outside her body. Her case was so severe that her initial chances of survival were less than 1%. Defying those odds, Evie was born at the Children’s Hospital Colorado Fetal Care Center. She spent her first 10 months of life as a patient, undergoing more surgeries and procedures than any child should ever have to endure. Today, Evie is walking, talking and thriving. She continues to overcome her medical challenges with a spunky personality and a smile.

In 2017, Armando was involved in a firecracker accident. His hands were caught in the blast, destroying tendons and shattering bones. He was treated at the Burn Unit at Children's Hospital Colorado. The accident damaged his left hand so badly that it had to be amputated. He has since undergone six surgeries to repair the damage. Through it all, Armando has maintained a positive attitude. He is back to playing sports, and he looks forward to getting an electronic prosthetic hand.
