When Nolan was two weeks old, he was diagnosed with a life-threatening infection called encephalitis meningitis. Attacking his nervous system, the infection severely damaged more than half of his brain. Nolan was airlifted to Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and although only two out of five infants survive this devastating infection, he was one that beat the odds!
Thanks to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer had life-saving equipment, like a ventilator, to help him survive until he could start breathing on his own again. CMN Hospitals helps purchase machines like this so that hospitals have what they need when kids need it most.
