Wonder Willow

Willow Harper Rose joined big sister Autumn, and mom and dad Melissa and John Marinovich on March 22, 2019.  Willow had some trouble breathing after she was born, and after a series of baby book "firsts" (MRI, EKG, and a battery of other tests, etc.), a mass was found between the C4 and T2 vertebrae on her spine.  Willow underwent surgery on Monday, April 8, and while biopsy results still need to come back, the surgeon does not believe the mass is a tumor.  Willow has been in the NICU since her arrival, and has been through more in her first few weeks than most adults go through in a lifetime.  She's quite the Wonder Woman already!  She's on the road to recovery, but the road will be a long one.  Donations received will go towards Willow's medical bills.
