Meet Gabe and his beautiful family. Gave is a typical, silly 2-year-old. He enjoys singing songs, adores all types of animals, and loves reading books (especially books about animals!) He is a very animated kid and has even made up some of his own sign language.
His parents consider him a “miracle baby.” He was born with CDH (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.) He had the fastest recovery from his surgery at 9 days old that doctors had seen in years and he only had a NICU stay of 40 days.
He was diagnosed with LCH (Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, a rare Cancer) at 19 months old and started chemotherapy. Right now, it looks as though the chemo wiped out the LCH. However, his liver is badly scarred from the LCH and cannot recover. He is currently on the waiting list for a liver transplant.
His family shared, “He’s the strongest person we’ve ever met and has truly taught us what it really means to appreciate each day.”
