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 UNSTOPPABLE
GIRL

Laura was born with one, partially-formed kidney. Her Doernbecher doctors were amazed she made it that far. Seventeen years and 9 surgeries later, she's still defying expectations. Despite ongoing health challenges, she is scheduled to graduate high school on time, and she aspires to be a doctor at Doernbecher someday.
