A Family of Miracles

Over the past few days Jennie and Chris of 92.9 The Mountain have stressed how integral Tucson Medical Center and TMC for Children are to our community, and how close the Tucson community is during The Mountain of Miracles Radiothon. Moments like this where Scott, a former TMC NICU baby from 1970 meets Baby Ryan are a particularly magical example of that community.

Forty-one years separate them, they met for the first time yesterday, but they are part of a family of miracles. As Scott shared, both were born via an emergency Cesarean section, both lived in the NICU, both were not expected to survive and yet here they both were.

Scott has kept TMC part of his life. In high school he volunteered here, then worked for Rural Metro, then the Department of Homeland Security and is now back at TMC. We're so pleased to have both Scott and Ryan as part of this family of miracles
