Urgent Care & ER

Meet three of our miracles

KS_16011_022516__074The McCardle family's Children's Hospital story began more than 40 years ago when Michelle had heart surgery at Children's Hospital as a baby.

Decades later, while pregnant with her third child, Michelle learned that her baby girl would be born with a complex heart defect that would require three surgeries to repair. Katie, now 10, is a bubbly and active fifth grader. But that wasn't the end of this family's story.

The McCardles' youngest son Matthew, 8, was born with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, and receives ongoing care from a team of Children's specialists.

Michelle, now a patient in Children's Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program, believes all of their stories might be different without the care provided by Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
