    Close physical contact was key in an early detection of our daughters condition

    They make miracles happen when the situation calls for some extra hope

    The first time we came into contact with RMHC was back in 2015 when our son, Odin, had to undergo surgery right after he just turned 1. Because he was still so little, one of us would have to stay with him. To be near him, I slept on the adjustable seat that was in his room.Early the next morning I ...

    Three months after the birth of Rashanti, she had to suddenly be rushed to the hospital. She was diagnosed with a serious heart condition that has brought me to the hospital on numerous occasions. No parent wants to hear that their child needs to be monitored for the rest of their life. It was a fac... Read more about The Fermina Family
