“Five days after Harper was born at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Red Bluff she went into heart failure. She was transferred to Mercy Medical Center in Redding where they determined she needed to be flown to UC Davis Children's Hospital. It was a life or death situation. Harper was diagnosed with truncus arteriosus (a rare type of heart disease) and needed immediate surgery. Dr. Raff was phenomenal. He's our hero. So when you ask what UC Davis Children's Hospital means to me, it's simple. It means my daughter's life.”
