We're Here to Transform Lives

Marquan Henderson was diagnosed with post-COVID Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C), was intubated and placed on life support. After a miraculous recovery, he told his doctors to use everything they learned from him to help care for other children. He said, “God made it so that I had to go through this to be able to help other families.”
