We are often going to the hospital and one of the ones we go to for my husbands heart is a pediatric hospital and we do see sick kid's all the time and it breaks my heart to see the kids like that. We have also seen tons of pictures they send in and post on the walls also. Every since me and my husband met we see this all the time when we go in I wish there was more people can do to help.
Florida — Nathan
UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital
Mitochondrial DiseaseAge 6 (as of 11/30/14)
“Lively” and “energetic” are common descriptors of any young boy. But Nathan’s spirited demeanor comes from deep within and with help from his hospital, as he was born with a condition that depletes vital energy levels.
Just a few weeks before his first birthday, Nathan was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease, a degenerative disorder that attacks the mitochondria — the source that creates enough energy for the body’s systems to sustain function and support growth. Nathan’s seven specialists ensure he stays on track with oxygen supplementation, daily medication and the placement of a gastric stimulator in his stomach — which he refers to as Ironman’s “arc light.”
While his body may not always have the proper energy, Nate’s fun-loving personality stands in stark contrast to his disease. He has no problem keeping up with his two older sisters, he loves playing on his iPad and he is the biggest Gator fan Florida has to offer.
