Hope for Trisomy 13 & 18 Babies

Bradley Mattes   |   August 11, 2016

Doctors routinely deny medical care to newborns with trisomy thirteen and trisomy eighteen.  They’re genetic conditions often incompatible with life, but not always.  Two new studies show babies with these conditions live with shortened lifespans but are a true blessing to their families.  Thanks to social media, families are networking and sharing information to get their children treatment.  Former Senator Rick Santorum and his wife Karen know the trials of getting their daughter, Bella, treatment.  Born with trisomy eighteen, she’s now eight.  Japan’s survival rates for trisomy are twice America’s because they’re more open to treating the kids.  I hosted a moving TV program on Lilliana Dennis who’s now five.  You can watch the program at life issues dot org, then click on the microphone icon.

A diagnosis of Trisomy 13 or Trisomy 18 no longer has to be a death sentence. Watch what happened when Lillian’s parents fought to get their daughter medical treatment.
