Tru Story - Adventures in the NICU
Tru Beare was born 14 weeks premature and weighing just 1 pound, but this wee warrior fought from her first breath on. Her adventures were filled with love, laughs and tears as she overcame numerous medical hurdles (Chronic Lung Disease, 2 battles with NEC, 2 Blood Clots, Sepsis, Staphylococcus, PDA, Congenital Heart Defect, Retinopathy, MRSA, etc) and endured extensive treatments and procedures (7 blood transfusions, 1 round of DEX, 4 rounds of antibiotics, and countless x-rays and ultrasounds). This video is an uplifting look on the most challenging, yet rewarding time of our lives.
