A Chance to Change the World

Quincy was born five weeks early via emergency c-section when doctors couldn’t find his heartbeat.
“Of course, it was such a scary time for me,” said Kristina, Quincy’s mom. “But he was born just fine and didn’t need the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or any specialized care.”
During the first year of his life, Quincy was sick often and faced numerous cases of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a common respiratory virus in infants and young children that causes cold-like symptoms. He also had a severe case of COVID that turned into COVID pneumonia. His lung issues and chest retractions prompted his pediatrician to refer the family to pulmonology.
