Elizabeth's Story

When Elizabeth was just five months old, she was transferred to the Children’s Health NICU to undergo heart surgery. She was discharged one week before her half birthday and soon thereafter began outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy at Our Children’s House, where she first met physical therapist Nikki Pham. She and Nikki have been working together two days a week ever since - for two years now - and mom Caitlin says the sessions are full of laughter, high fives, waving and blowing of kisses.
