- As soon as Sean Patrick was born, he needed a stent in his heart’s atrial septum. In fact, the lifesaving procedure had to be completed within just one minute of his birth.

- Bodybuilder Theron Moodie and his wife were expecting the birth of their first child.

In fact, when he went into complete organ failure, he had only a 15% chance of survival. Treated while in a medically induced coma, Theron’s Rotoprone® bed was flipped every few hours to relieve pressure on his struggling lungs, heart, and kidneys. Thirteen days later, 7 pound 1 ounce Giovanni Scott Moodie made his world debut at BayCare’s St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital. And against all odds, both his parents were there to see it.
- Dawnmarie didn’t expect to live, let alone run a 5K race. A leaky aortic valve left her so sick that doctors at BayCare’s Morton Plant Hospital didn’t think she could survive open-heart surgery. But they had the vision to see a not-so-obvious solution: a transcatheter aortic valve replacement. TAVR is a minimally invasive procedure that allowed our doctors to place a new valve inside her old one. Within two weeks, Dawnmarie was already walking to improve better heart fitness. Now she participates in 5K races, and her life, which could have been a sprint, is still very much a marathon. Learn more about BayCare’s advanced cardiovascular centers at BayCareHeart.org.
