Catherine spent her first five months at Boston Children’s Hospital. Her organs had formed outside her body, and weeks of setbacks were then linked to a hole in her heart.

At three months old, Catherine underwent open-heart surgery and was soon well enough go to home.

Years later, skin concerns brought Catherine to Boston Children’s again; doctors diagnosed a rare autoimmune disease.

Now, Catherine receives a regular immunosuppressive therapy—and thrives.

Fun fact: Catherine participates in theatre and recently won her school’s spelling bee.
