Hirschprung's Disease
Crystal Stanfield

"History Does Repeat Itself"
By Bev J

Children's Hospital is the most wonderful place! My daughter Crystal, now 23, was diagnosed with Hirschprung's Disease when she was 3 months old, Dr. Cain was her surgeon, I had no idea what that was and that major surgeries could be performed on small babies like that. 23 years later, Crystal has a daughter and son, her son Cash also has been diagnosed with Hirschprungs, his first surgery was done in September. He'll go back in March 2009 to see when a pull through will be done. All of the staff is just absolutely wonderful!

They saved my daughter and grandson's life. No words could ever express the gratitude I feel and could never ever thank them enough for the caring and thoughtful Doctors & Staff of Children's Hospital.
