My 8 year-old son is friends with a beautiful girl named Emma who is affected by IBD. A few years ago we were sad to learn that she was a pretty sick kiddo. But with treatments she has received from the team at Helen Devos Children’s hospital, the difference is absolutely amazing. Her smile is back, she has a great group of friends at school and my son was thrilled to play on her basketball team last winter. It was awesome to see her on the court as one of the strongest kids out there. The family can’t give enough praise about the team that has helped them through this very difficult time and I hope that more kids are lucky enough to receive such great care.
