Faith Abby Abrams is a miracle child; she is completely healthy 5 years later after being born extremely premature. Bob and Christine sat down with the Marie Massey, Rich Abrams, and Faith Abrams to chat about their extraordinary experience with Hassenfeld's Children's Hospital at NYU Langone.
On March 7, 2013, just 23 weeks and 1 day into her pregnancy, Marie Massey began to feel ill during her commute to NYC from Princeton, NJ. Faith Abrams was born that day weighing on 15 ounces. Infants born before 24 weeks have a survival rate between 10 and 20%. Less than 5% survive without serious lifelong cognitive and physical defects. Marie would visit her baby girl every day during her lunch hour. "There were days where I felt so low, and Faith brought me up."
During their time on air, Rich Abrams shared how helpful the NYU Langone staff were during the duration of Faith's stay. At on points, he said that there was 16 doctors checking up on Faith!
Four months later and four days after he actual due date, Faith was discharged. Now she is a funny 5 year old who loves gymnastics and ballet.
