THE COMEBACK
KID

Nothing stops Kya Blake. When she was seven, an ordinary trip to the beach almost killed her. A sneaker wave buried her under a log. Kya’s skull was fractured, her heart stopped and her lungs filled with sand. First responders described her as lifeless.

But nothing stops OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital either. When Kya arrived by life flight, a world-class team of doctors and nurses flew into action. After ten days, the 7-year-old girl who wouldn’t quit opened her eyes, beginning the road to recovery.

THE SUNNY
SURVIVOR

When Macey was five, her parents got the call no family expects. Brain cancer — a tumor the size of two golf balls. But they knew Macey had an amazing team behind her. As Dr. Nathan Selden, one of the country’s best pediatric brain surgeons, told them: “This is what we do. We’ve got this.” Today, Macey's cancer is gone. A happy, energetic nine-year-old, Macey is back on track.

THE
EXTRAORDINARY
SON

Logan was just an infant when his mother learned that he would need both a kidney and liver transplant to survive a rare genetic disorder. She was the donor for both transplants. Logan is now a thriving 14-year-old who loves basketball and video games. His mom now works at OHSU as a clinical research assistant, dedicating her career to helping families like hers.
