Trisomy 18 Not a Death Sentence


Trisomy 18 Not a Death Sentence

Bradley Mattes   |   August 16, 2019

Parents with unborn children diagnosed with Trisomy Eighteen have, in the past, been advised to abort.  Or doctors refuse to provide heart surgery or other needed medical treatment common with this condition.  Slowly but surely that’s changing, thanks in part to Children’s Hospital in Omaha.  Dr. James Hammel and his team don’t discriminate against these children, and many who receive treatment are living for years.  During the time I hosted our half-hour TV program, Facing Life Head-On, I interviewed the family of Lilliana with Trisomy Eighteen whose parents had to fight to get their daughter treatment.  Now, years later, you can see the program and follow her progress on Facebook.  Go to life issues dot org and click on the microphone icon for details.

Hope for Lilliana TV episode
