  • Johnny

    Living Life to the Fullest

    Johnny was born with a heart defect. When he was 8, he developed an infection that required open heart surgery. His parents trusted his care to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

    “It was a pretty intense and scary thing,” said his dad, John, but Johnny came through surgery successfully. “They gave me my boy back.”

    Today, Johnny lives the full life of a regular teenager, playing sports and even running Tour de Broward every year with his surgeon, Frank Scholl, MD, Chief, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Heart Institute.

    “It’s the reason why we do what we do, is to get kids back to their families,” said Dr. Scholl.

    Johnny plans to be a paramedic someday, so he can pay it forward and care for others the way the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital team took care of him.

    “To see him flourishing, what better evidence of what a hospital can do for a family, for a child,” dad said.

  • Noah

    The Gift of Everyday Life

    Five-year-old Noah loves to splash and play with his younger sister in their pool.

    “To see Noah in the pool is one of our greatest joys,” says his mom, Lisa. “He’s learning to hold his breath.”

    “Nobody who meets him now can ever believe that his life was once very much at risk,” she adds.

    But these simple pleasures seemed unfathomable when Noah was a baby. He was born with respiratory distress syndrome. According to his doctor, pediatric ENT specialist Samuel Ostrower, MD, Chief, Pediatric Otolaryngology, Noah’s airway was so narrow it was like breathing through a coffee stirrer.

    “Once we had his airway opened, everything changed,” said Lisa. “That one procedure literally saved his life.”

    “We definitely appreciate how far he's come and that he doesn't have any side effects or symptoms,” agreed Noah’s dad, Mike. “They have the expertise that we needed.”

    “At Joe DiMaggio, the trust was instant,” Lisa concluded.
