I’m very lucky and blessed to be here today

George Kudwa, Patient

George Kudwa weighed just three pounds when he was born. Now, as an adult in his twenties, he is among a group of former Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients featured in a special Photos of Hope exhibit on display at Bronson Children’s Hospital. The before and after photos show how far the former tiny patients have grown since their first days in the NICU.  “I’m very lucky and blessed to be here today,” Kudwa says. “That’s what these photos remind me of.”

The photos line the halls of the NICU, to give families of current NICU patients encouragement and hope. The photo display was supported through donors to the Bronson Health Foundation. To see the full gallery of photos, click here.
