Nemo's Story

Nemo, born with a heart defect, shares his name with his family’s favorite film character, the fish with a similar issue. Today, after lifesaving surgeries, he is thriving. “Children’s National gave my son his life,” Tiffany says. “They keep doing everything they can to keep him happy, healthy and living a normal life.”
