From Hospital Beds to Football Fields: A’Niah’s Inspiring Wish Journey

A'Niah Header
So, when A'Niah was first admitted to the local hospital, I thought she just had a severe stomach bug. She was walking and talking when we got to the hospital. Within hours she was no longer responsive and was being flown to Hershey Medical Center. Within minutes of arriving at the hospital, A'Niah began to seize, which led her going into cardiac arrest for 38 minutes. The doctors said they had never given anyone CPR for that long. She was not expected to live through the night.
