Kaia is an energetic seven-year-old girl and thanks to an expert team at the Stollery, Kaia will live a full life.
While pregnant, Kaia’s mom learned her baby would likely not survive delivery as she had a facial mass. Luckily, Kaia was delivered at 32 weeks by EXIT procedure – similar to a C-section, only Kaia was still inside and attached to her umbilical cord when they got her breathing. Kaia spent her first few months at the Stollery, where she had multiple surgeries, including removing the mass. Kaia visits the Stollery regularly and her mom is thankful to have the world-class Hospital in her backyard.
