Moments after birth, Marlowe suffered a stroke. She was immediately rushed to The Hospital for Sick Children. Over the next week, the NICU became her home and dozens of SickKids staff became part of her daily routine.
Results from an MRI showed significant damage to an area in Marlowe's brain. Frightened and concerned, her parents heard the words they needed to hear from Marlowe’s doctors: "Everything to do with strokes is different when it comes to babies," they said. "You watch. You'll be amazed."
Now, at four years old, Marlowe is hitting all of her cognitive benchmarks. She thinks the specialists who see her regularly are her fan club based on their constant cheers and encouragement.
With a small palsy on her left side, determined, she learned to crawl using her head and right arm. She has just received a special orthotic and hand brace and does physiotherapy regularly. She loves to swim and has recently taken up gymnastics.
Together, we will continue to make a difference in the lives of brave young patients like Marlowe. Help us support our critical, lifesaving work by taking part in the SickKids Dreams & Discoveries Lottery.
